Great Alt-Bar Comparison Website - WhatBars.com

by Igor

Comparing handlebars can be a test of your mental fortitude. Bends, reach, angles, rise, grip lengths can make you go crazy - especially trying to compare alt-bars styles that may have non-traditional dimensions. If only there was a way that you could overlay a bunch of options at once on a computer screen...


Whatbars.com makes the selection of flat/riser/alt bar so much easier. By having a simple top-down overlay of the bar, you can compare sweep angles, grip lengths, and the general fit with ease. There are also columns to view the width, rise/drop, sweep, reach, weight, and a link to where you can find additional details of the bar on the respective company's website.

It's a very clever and lightweight program that is an undoubtedly useful tool for those looking to adjust and dial in their cockpit - and we're very happy to be a sponsor of Chip's endeavor.

Check it out!

No data for flare on drop bars

The program was really designed for flat and similar alt-bars, but Chip had a lot of requests for weird drop bars. Ideally there would be two sites: one for flat bars and one for drops to have the proper dimensions listed for each style. This is a great first step for comparison, and we're happy to be a part of it!

What a wonderful resource. Definitely a lot of bars missing, but it would take years to get images, scale them and add them only to find out they're discontinued. Great Job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
