Bullmoose Bars and Wider Traveler Tires from Fairweather

by Igor
Our friends from Fairweather in Japan have been hitting it out of the park with their newest offerings of tires and handlebars. Their new 700x32 Traveler tires use the same herringbone tread pattern as their 28mm variant, but with a bit of added air volume for comfort on long days of mixed terrain conquering. They weigh 267g, but who's counting?

Like the 28s, the tread colors (pictured left to right) come in Algae (my favorite), Black, Rust, and Asphalt.


These Bullmoose Bars in Noir and Silver will add a touch of retro flair to any build, whether it's a roadie-townie conversion or a bikepacking rig. At 710mm, they're wide but not too wide. The integrated stem makes for a 90mm extension and just the right amount of sweep for a neutral riding position. They're made for 1 1/8" threadless steerers, but they work well with our Threadless Adaptor.

Only one pinch bolt on those handlebars?

@ Mark Holm - Yes, one pinch bolt for the handlebars

And does one pinch bolt work well for the handlebars, even off road? I love the look for my late 90s Rockhopper and the sweep angle is spot on for me, but it makes me nervous.

@ Anon 11:41 - no worries about one bolt. The bars are made of cro moly, so plenty strong and it is an M6 bolt tightening it, makes it extra strong.
