I wanted these handlebars to modify my Brompton, but initially they were out of stock. I emailed SJS Cycles to ask them to let me know when they had stock again. Sure enough, a couple of weeks later an email arrived and I ordered straight away.
The bars themselves are great. I didn’t need to cut the ends and they don’t affect the fold.

Happy Repeat customer, happy with SJS service and these handlebars! Great alternative to the stock M bars from Brompton. Wider, giving more space to add gadgets to the 'cockpit' and slightly lower for a better riding position (personal preference).
super nice 'different design' part and quality

ProsUseful markings to aid trimming to size
Bought these to replace the M bars on my 2018 Brompton, as they'd been through a lot, and wanted something a touch lower rising. Went for these instead of the carbon as wanted to try Ergon GP4 grips. Probably have trimmed a little over 25mm off each end, made easy with the markings, and hasn't significantly affected fold. With the addition of the grips, very comfortable for long rides, and more than stiff enough.
Easy fitting

ConsNot much at the price!
ProsEasy to fit.
Got these to replace P type bars. With the 600 rise it's in-between the upper P position (which I found too upright) and the lower P position (where you can't reach the brakes from). My worry was that I'd need to start trying to trim the cables but with the rise and wider lever placement on the bar the cables aren't too long. They do hang a bit lower, but that doesn't seem to be an issue and folding is no problem. Sturdier that the P type, and the wider position makes the ride bit less twitchy. Recommend them if you're looking to change a P type.

ConsSlightly wider folded package.
ProsWider, lower bars give better control.
Fitted these to a single speed pre 2017 M type. Fitting was a doddle - no need to shorten bars to give folded ground clearance & no need to adjust brake cable lengths. They feel much less flimsy than the original bars and, with the extra width, give better control. At around 20 quid a bargain.
Questions & Answers (33)
Can I use this with 2013 M-type?
10 Apr 2021
1. Will it fold properly?
2. How much lower will the the bars be? (I want a lower ride)
3. Do I need to change anything else?
4. If yes, which components and part numbers?

Yes, these will allow folding, it will be about 60mm lower.

The cables will be a touch baggy but should be okay if you are aware of this.

Thanks - 13/04/21
Rise = 100mm. JK site gives 71.5 mm, which value is correct?
04 Nov 2020
We measure the rise of 100mm as the centre of the bar at the clamp section to the centre of the bar at the grip middle.

Thanks - 06/11/20
Can I fit these to a 2020 H2R without changing cables?
21 Sep 2020
Black Edition H2R, brand new from the shop (I suppose it could be an old stock 2019 but doubt it). I know they’re wider than stock and can be cut down, but does the handlebar height drop by about 30mm? If I want an even lower handlebar can you suggest a part number?
These fit on and you do not need to trim the cables at all. Even if you cut the bars a bit, the extra width takes up any slack.

When this will be back in stock?
04 Jul 2020
Due to COVID, we cannot provide a time as to which these will come back into stock.

When is the Joseph kousac mid rise handlebar will be in stock again? Thanks
21 May 2020
Looking forward to your response.
Our ETA is mid/late June.

Thanks - 22/05/20
Do you know when you Wik get more of these in stock?
16 May 2020
Hi, we have an estimated delivery date of mid June. Thanks
Install on 2019 M3L need to cut? And luggage option
11 Apr 2020
Will the bar need to be cut down for the fso that it will roll properly after folding? And does this limit luggage choice for the front? Many thanks!
If you have a rack / larger easy wheels then they are fine, otherwise you need to trim a little.

No impact on luggage.

Thanks - 13/04/20
Can I use this with a 2003 Brompton M bar please ?
20 Mar 2020
Is it not too wide to fit in the narrower stem clamp of older Bromptons ?
These fit fine!

Thanks - 20/03/20
Can I use this on a M stem?
08 Mar 2020
Will I achieve the S handlebar height if I use this mid riser bar on a M stem? Or will it go lower than the standard S handlebar height?
This will achieve M type -30mm, there is 90mm difference between M and S types - plus the S type has a larger reach.

Thanks - 09/03/20
Change from S bars to this?
24 Jan 2020
Can you give me all the part numbers for the cables I need to change from s bars to these? I have 6 speed gears on a 2x3 changers.

Thanks - 24/01/20
If I fit the mid-rise to a P type would I need to replace or trim the cables?
22 Oct 2019
Hi there,

You may be able to get away with trimming the cable, however, as we have never done this we cannot say for certain.

Hi, apologies if I might repeat similar questions, but I did not understand fully if I can fit this handlebar to my Brompton? If yes, what other items I need to get? Can I please have all items’ codes so that I can order them together? Also, is this the same black matt finish colour?
Yes. You will require M type cables; SJS Cycles part number : 31211 / 29806 / 42917 / 42913

If you are using a rack / larger easy wheels you do not need to cut the bars down.

Thanks - 09/09/19
Hi, can you tell me the length of the straight grip section of these bars please.
22 Aug 2019
The room for grips / levers etc is 190mm.

Thanks - 23/08/19
Rise compared to 2019 M bars?
16 Aug 2019
Will this bar offer a lower rise than the latest m type handlebars? Sorry if this is a repeat question.
yes, and it's wider (unless you cut them down)
Hi can I fit these to my 2018 Brompton S Type
06 Aug 2019
Hi can I fit these to my S Type Brompton, and will I need to change the brake and gear cables as well, if so do you sell them please?
Yes, designed to raise or lower the front end to suit the rider. When fitted to an S type stem the height position is the same as an M type so you WILL need to order the correct M-type brake and gear cables which we sell, search our store for: brompton cable m type
Replace 2017 M bars ?
21 Mar 2019
I know the mid riser bars have a 20-30 mm lower rise than my 2017 M bars, if I trim the mid riser to 10-15 mm wider than the M each side, do you think I'll still have to trim the cables? Also will the mid riser fit the 1 piece brake/gear lever clamps on my 2017 M. Thanks
Yes you can fit these no problem, just leave the brake levers a little wider than before to take up the excess cable slack.

thanks - 22/03/19
Is this stiffer than current (shallow) official M bar?
12 Feb 2019
I have said official (shallow) M bar on an old Brompton pre2000MStem but it is still a bit flexy Is this one much stiffer
Hard to tell the amount of play with new ones, though by being slightly shorter they do tend to be slightly stiffer.
many thanks
Can you get these or another mid rise with no sweep or bend? Don’t want the wider fold. Ta
07 Feb 2019
I have a rohloff Brompton so already wider than usual.
These have the same angles as a Brompton M type bar, just less rise and wider grip area!

Thanks - 08/02/19

Hi, Putting this handlebar on a M 2017 stem will I need to trim the cables? Thanks! Cheers
17 Dec 2018
Unless you leave the bars uncut at 600mm, and run the brake levers and shifters wider than stock, it is advisable to trim the cables.

Thanks - 17/12/18
29 Nov 2018
sorry, another one. I will have to change the gear cables. Having never done this, do I need two sets (one for the internal hub and one for the 'derailleur'?
For new style shifters;
3 speed - SJS Cycles part number : 42917
2 speed - SJS Cycles part number : 42913

For older style shifters;
3 speed - SJS Cycles part number : 31234

fitting brake levers/gear shifters to this bar
29 Nov 2018
I have an S-type 2015 model - will this bar take the levers/shifters on the outer end (like on an M-type bar? Thank you.
This handlebar will take the standard brake levers / shifters new or old style exactly the same as fitting to an M type bar.

Thanks 30/11/18
I have S bar, how much do I need to cut from 600mm to fit the folding?
12 Nov 2018
These will convert your S type to the height of an M type, just wider, you do not need to cut the bars down at all, they do not affect the fold! Only trim if desired for comfort.

Thanks - 12/11/18
I have S type bars, what extra is needed when fitting Mid riser bars
03 Sep 2018
You will also need m type length cables.

Mid riser on M 2018 stem
29 Jun 2018
Putting this handlebar on a M 2018 stem will I need to trim the cables?
Yes you will need to shorten the cables unless you widen the position of the brake levers.

What would a JK Midrise give me on a H6L 2018 stem?
25 May 2018
What ride height equivalent will it give me to the S or M models. Do I need to adjust cables. Will this fold OK. I want to achieve a more sporty position and look. Many thanks
Hi there,

These bars will drop the front end by roughly 30mm. An M type is roughly 60mm lower.

Yes you will need to custom cut the cables or they will be too long.

How would a JK Midrise would fit on a M2017 Stem?
24 Apr 2018
Do i need to adjust the cables? I would like to achieve a bit more ergonomic & also sporty position, but not as sporty as an S stem... Thanks
Hi there,

The height would be reduced and you will need to trim the cables to suit. - The s stem is actually longer than the m stem, so if you fitted these bars to an s stem you would create an m type!

Do I need to change the cables?
18 Apr 2018
I ride a 2018 S type 2 speed. Considering upgrade to JK mid rise habdlebar. Do I need to replace with longer cables for breakes and shifting?
Hi there,

Yes this will convert the overall height to that of an m type and you will need to use m type cables.

would this product be compatible with a 2010 'P' -type post?
03 Apr 2018
Hi there,

This handlebar on a P type stem would leave you roughly 5mm lower than the current M type.

27 Mar 2018
I'm assuming these are somewhere between the S and the M in terms of riser height?
I have what I think is a 2009 M and want a lower front but at 6ft3" I reckon an S wool be too low even for this flexible roadie.
Hi there,

Yes that is correct, we generally recommend test riding some different models with the different handlebar types. It is all personal preference, we know people over 6'5 riding s types!

How much rise does this handlebar offer? 80mm?
31 Dec 2017
I have an S Bar which cannot take the T-Bag. Will the T-Bag fit after converting to this mid-riser bar?
Hi there,

The T bag will fit S handlebar bikes by using the short bag frame - SJS Cycles part number : 13499
The bag will be a little lower in overall height but you will still benefit from the width/depth. - Been using my T bag like these for 6 months.

Is it possible to fit this to an M model brommie without altering the cables?
19 Dec 2017
Considering converting my M to an S but wondered if using this mid riser as an alternative route to having a slightly more aggressive stance and also increased width for comfort.

The S type is 80mm lower than the M type, I would suggest mocking that up and seeing how it feels. Another thing to mention is the profile of the S type stem is obviously lower but also protrudes forward further. By using this handlebar you would achieve a slightly lower front end yes, you could continue to use the same cables but even with spacing them wider it is likely that you will have baggy cables that can get caught during folding.
