Jones H Bars – comfy and unique
The Jones H Bar has the same hand, stem and brake lever position as the original H-Bar but the cross bar sweeps forward to allow the levers to go behind the cross bar instead of in front. This gives longer uninterrupted hand positions and will allow trigger and grip/twist shifters to fit on the rearward extensions (unlike the original H-bar and the Cut H-bar). The continuous front loop of the Jones H bar enhances stiffness and is good for additional aero hand positions and mounting lights, GPS devices etc. Comfort and power and an impressive weight. With the levers in the optimum position the rider is superbly placed for fast riding while still enjoying all the hand positions available. The rearward extensions allow extra leverage and a wider hand position – be it for comfort or power. All H-bars are for a 31.8 stem – the cross tube is now tapered and butted with a 31.8 mm clamp area. The grip tubes on the aluminum version are also butted for strength, and weight savings.
This 710 wide Jones H bar was originally for Surly Bikes. They asked Jeff Jones about the possibility of getting custom Jones H-Bars for made for some of their bikes. They wanted a Loop H-bar but with a longer grip section and more overall width. He made the samples and he says “I have been riding with them for a few months now. I really like the extra width and grip length for long rides”. This new Jones H-Bar is 2″/50mm wider – the grip section is about 1.5″ longer than the original.
