    looks like the canyon hoverbar. I know epoxies are strong, but I would still be frightened. I would feel much more comfortable if I was putting my weight on the bar clamped in the stem...but that would defeat the point a bit, no?
    Unless you just wanted more space for putting your bike accessories :)

    Looks like an absolute hot mess to me, but kudos for being your own lab rat. Great things can happen thinking outside the box.

    This is some wild SOPWAMTOS.

    I dig originality and iconoclasm, but he kinda lost me at this. Actually, and I hate to be so critical of blog-level writing, but as an (ex-)academic this bluster without substance is pretty intolerable. There, I said it, hoping a little that I'm wrong and that there is genuine functionality added here....

    I hate having to rescue the roadies but they arenít capable of actually designing bikes....these de-couple the hand grips from the front wheel as traditional means limit geometry concepts

    Am I right in understanding the point of this bar is to fit drop bars on a bike designed around flat bars?

    No. It's for drop bars on gravel bikes.

    That's explained in the post.

    Haven't checked your link but couldn't you have achieved the same thing by mouting the handlebar with a short rising stem ? Or design some kind of adapter to mount a downhill stem designed for a dual crown? I'm not sure I understand the need for that second tube on the handlebar as it doesn't seem to be used to support the hands.

    Perhaps oddly, I hate it less than the Canyon version.

    I'm confused. Can someone explain to me what the slack geometry is buying here?

    Previously explained here I think:

    Everything changed.

    There is a 5mm screw under the hoods of the SRAM Force control that is spun clockwise to install and counter clockwise to remove. SRAM provides these instructions with the parts.

    From the photos it looks like the clamp that the lever screws into is already on the bar before the crossbar is glued on.

    It turns out that everything we've known about bicycles for the last 150 years is wrong.

    Imagine that.
