I was very excited when these bars showed up today as I might try a pair out for myself. A slim cross bar and multi buted tubing keep this bar light at 24oz. They’re pretty tall at 8.25″ and 29″ wide, they also have 4 degrees of upsweep which I love. Handlebars with just one degree of upsweep always felt bent down to me. I can’t wait to ride these!
Animals new RS rim is made from 7005 aluminum with a welded seam. The sidewalls have a short vertical section then an angled portion, spoke holes are drilled for traditional lacing, which in my opinion is way better than the goofy cross-lacing some rims use now.
We also received a new Eclat seat that has the post built into it.
