On-One Mary Handlebar

DESCRIPTION

Meet Mary... Our classic alt-bar. We like to think of it as an extreme sweep riser bar. It's a bit odd, but makes a lot of sense once you give it a go.

  • 37mm rise (measured center to center)
  • 645mm width
  • 22.2mm outside diameter (MTB levers fit fine)

    Strength:

    Best bar ever, cured numb fingers and aching wrists caused by my old mtb bar, wide enough for good control on the trail, low vibration, good shock adsorption with good feel, supremely comfortable for long treks with ergon 3gp grips. Plenty of room for ergon grips, levers, gears, lights, inner bar ends, bell and klickfix basket etc etc ( those are mainly on my road bike) Absolutely love it, transformed my emtb and also my road bike - brought back the joy in the ride. Good value, highly recommended. Black looks great. Easy to fit. Used daily for last four years without any problems,

    Weakness:

    Bar ends end up at odd angle due to back-sweep - but bar is so comfortable you don't really meed the alt-positions anyway

    Strength:

    I used to be a biker. Then, I was into running for about 20-25 years. When I got back into biking, I found I had a lot of wrist pain and hand numbness that didn't used to bother me. I put this On-One Mary bar on a hybrid bike I use for bike paths and graded dirt roads (700C x 32 tires). This bar, plus raising the stem several inches to reduce the pressure on my hands, has been a big help. The wrist pain is my less. I still get hand numbness on rides of several hours, but that is anatomy and age, not the bar's fault. This bar was not available from any distributor in the US when I was looking for one in 2011, but I found one at my favorite bike store--eBay. I went with a Hitec J-bar on my single speed mountain bike. I like the J-bar more, but it requires a stem with a 4-bolt face plate.

    Weakness:

    I have a 15-20 year old Girvin Flexstem on this old hybrid. It was difficult to get the wide clamp around the bend in the handlebar. My stem clamp is 35mm wide (NOT the clamp diameter, which is 25.4mm on my bike). If your stem is 2 or 3 mm narrower, you will have no difficulty. Do pay attention to clamp diameter. I read on the Internet that this handlebar is available in both 31.8mm and 25.4mm. On my road bike, my hands and wrists still feel most comfortable riding the hoods on dropbars.

    A very comfortable bar which helps with wrist and hand problems that occur with straight bars. My choice for a mountain bike or hybrid when your stem does not have a 4-bolt face plate.

    Strength:

    Comfy backsweep
    Stiffness
    Cool factor of not running conventional straight or risers for my 29er hardtail
    No more sore wrists, numb hands

    Weakness:

    None.

    I have been using this with gt karakoram hardtail. This is really a great bar, have also the 720mm fleegle for my rip9. I use this bar primarily for my 29er commuter hardtail, but once i tried it on the trails, will never go back to straight or risers again. Control was amazing on rocky, loose, any trails. Planning on replacing my fleegle with another mary for my rip9. If there was carnegies here in the philippines will use it for my rip9. Wish it was a bit wider around 720mm, then it is perfect.

    Strength:

    Exceptional control over rocks and roots, track stands are easier, and the front end is more stable during climbs

    Weakness:

    Might not be wide enough for some people

    I am using the Polished Black 31.8 clamp Mary bar, mounted on my 2011 Salsa Mukluk with a 110mm 6 degree stem.

    I have tried several types of bars, flat and riser and some alt-bars with anywhere between 11 and 23 degrees back sweep. I keep coming back to the Mary bar. I feel like I'm riding slower with the Mary but the GPS and my wrists don't lie. I am at least half a mile an hour faster when riding with the Mary bar. Midwest single track is all about weaving in and out of trees and bounding over roots, and the Mary is narrow enough to fit between the trees while giving the leverage required to keep the front wheel under control when riding over large roots, rocks, and logs. Other bars require that I shed a lot of speed when negotiating tight single track or risk bashing my knuckles. I do have to use a stem that is about 20mm longer in order to fit comfortably but it's worth it. I can ride considerably farther with this bar since I no longer experience wrist or elbow pain. It's even comfy enough for long boring bike path/road rides.

    Strength:

    This is my rigid bike enabler. With out these bars I have pain in my hands, calluses and the like. With them I can ride for hours and hours on rocky technical terrain without a worry, pain or calluses building.

    Weakness:

    They are weird looking and there is barely enough room for a full size lock on grip, brake and shifter.

    If you find that you have hand pain I suggest going right to these and bypassing the mid range bend bars (fleegle, salsa etc). They will take some getting used to but I use them on everything, including very technical rocky descents and ascents.

    They in no way hinder my ability to descend technically or ascend technically.

    If i had a full suspension bike I would use these or ragley carnegies in a heart beat. They just really work for me and my hands.
