  • Top radius allows comfortable hand positions all the way across, while maintaining short reach
  • Designed to allow a flat transition between handlebar and brake lever
  • Flattened indentation for cable routing

Rated 4 out of 5 by from More leverage out of the saddle Replaced standard roadie bar with this Cowbell bar on my SS Schwinn Madison. Offers more leverage and better arm angle when grinding up those hills. Flare isn't quite as extreme as the Salsa Woodchipper bar. Great bar! I've used several "flared" bars on my randonneur bikes over the years, and this is as good as any.. and costs less!

Will this bar work with my existing 29" Stumpjumper mountain bike stem and brake/shift levers

Asked by: monty
This may work but we encourage you to bring your bike to a bike shop and ask someone for an assessment of compatibility just to be sure.

What is the difference between the Cowbell 3 and the Cowbell 2?

Asked by: csapp
The material has been updated on the Cowbell 3 to a 6061-T6 double butted alloy instead of the 7050-T7 double-butted aluminum from the Cowbell 2.
