ProsFeel, handling
I bought these to replace my 2013 H6R bars as I used it more for bike camping and along canal paths etc and these have transformed the ride. The bike feels steadier now.

ConsNone at all!
ProsGreat comfort and handling!
What can I say but it’s my second purchase of this item. Both my Brompton’s handle superbly after installing these bars, not to mention the ease on my hands due to the orientation. In fact I’m seriously considering purchasing one more for my third Brompton. Ace ??
Really useful upgrade - better handling, more hand positions

ProsBetter handling and more hand positions.
I bought these after reading reviews and discussing them with SJS. They're ideal for replacing the 2017 mid rise bars and give you the opportunity to use 130mm length grips and additional bar ends as well. You need larger roller wheels and I also replaced the mudguard wheel with a larger double wheel version to stop bar ends fouling the floor when folded. A great improvement.

ProsGood value , good fine adjustment to ride position.
Very pleased with these. Easy to replace the original Brompton handlebar to give me a less upright ride position, more like my road bikes. Much more comfortable now and the bar was changed using the same cable lengths. I did add one extra cable-tie to tidy up the cabling.
Really easy fit to a 2019 M-type

ProsGood quality, nice shape, easy to fit.
No need to change cables, and the fold was fine with the bars at full width., For aesthetic reasons I cut them down by 25mm each end with a junior hacksaw and they look more purposeful now.
You just need three different Allen keys and you're done.
The silver colour is slightly more shiny than the stock Brompton silver but it's not glaringly obvious.
I'm only 5 feet tall and I find the standard M bars a bit too 'sit up and beg' so hopefully these will be more comfortable when cycling uphill.
Excellent purchase

ProsBetter look than P bar
Used these to replace some P style bars on my Brompton. Straightforward swap with no need to shorten cables. Cut down bars by about 20-25 mm each end and fitted Ergon grips. Fold not affected, great improvement giving slightly lower overall height and more forward riding position.
Fantastic quality and price

ProsPerfect for B75, good quality, good price
I recently bought a B75. The bike's M stem is lower than the more recent M stem, I believe, and the bike uses old-style M bars, which are higher rise than the current M bars. I wanted to lower the front end, because I live in a hilly area and because I'm used to riding road bikes, so I bought the mid-rise bars. They worked out perfectly. The front end is now lower by at least a couple of inches, and the bars are sturdier. and wider, so the steering feels more comfortable and secure. The bike also rides much better uphill, and it is fine to ride out of the saddle. I didn't cut them down - they are nonetheless well off the floor when the bike is folded. I was also able to use all of the original cabling without any problems at all. Good price too. Very pleased!

Is this lighter on weight comparing to original H handlebar 2020?
07 Apr 2021
Thank you for your enquiry, they are around the same weight but a lower rise
Installation on H
23 Jan 2021
I am looking to purchase this mid rise to work with my Brompton H6L. I intend to use the full width of 600mm. Will there be a need to change cables and will it still be able to fold? Thank you.
You will not need to change the cables, but you will need to use larger easy wheels / a rear rack to lift the bike slightly higher.

Can I replace it from S Brompton Handlebar without adjusting / changing the cables?
01 Sep 2020
No, you will need to fit H type cables.

When this handlebar i fitted to a 2019 S bike will I be able to use an Brompton T bag? Thanks
10 Jul 2020
You can use the T bag on a S type if you cut off the handle / use the shorter frame.

Otherwise, fitting the Mid Rise bar will give you more clearance for the T bag.

Joseph Kuosac mid riser bar.
27 Jun 2020
Can I use Joseph Kuosac mid riser bars on my 2020 Electric Brompton to replace M type bar? I want to lower the riding position slightly without having to replace cables. Will trim bars down too.
Yes, these will fit no problem, you only need to trim down if you DO NOT have larger easy wheels / a rear rack!

Thanks - 26/06/20
Any reason I couldn’t use these on a non-Brompton?
05 May 2020
They have the right rise that I’m looking for, just wondered if there is anything related to their fitting that means they aren’t a good idea for a ‘normal’ bike

Hi, you could use these bars on any bike you like. Thanks
Using with pre 2017 S type
02 Feb 2020
How much do these need cutting down to maintain the fold (without the handlebars ends hitting the floor) on a pre 2017 S type.
Depends on the bike! If you are using larger easy wheels and or a rack, not at all. With stock easy wheels, normally around 20-40 depending on the grips.

2017 Brompton mtype
22 Oct 2019
If I used this rather than the standard Brompton mtype handlebar then how much lower will the handlebar be approximately.

Hi there,

The Brompton handlebars from pre-2017 have a rise of 150mm meaning that these would be 50mm lower. The ones from post-2017 have a rise of 115mm so they will be 15mm lower.

Kuosac mid riser on B75
07 Oct 2019
If I put these bars on a B75, will I have to change the cables, or anything else?
Because these are wider, you should be fine to leave the stock cables.

Thanks - 08/10/19
Will this lower the bars of my 2019 H6L? If so, by how much? Will the cables need to be trimmed?
12 Jul 2019
Yes, this will put them midway between M and H, roughly 30mm lower. The bars are 600mm wide and will need cutting to roughly 560/80mm (40/60mm wider than stock) meaning the stability will be improved and you will not need to trim cables.

thanks - 12/07/19
Will fitting this bar to a S-Type allow use of the T-bag without fouling the cables? Thanks.
16 Apr 2019
It is one option, but you will need to recable the bike. Alternatively you can fit SJS Cycles part number : 13499 to the bag, which will ensure it to fit perfectly just slouch the bag slightly.

Can I use my 'old style' Brompton brake levers with this bar?
17 May 2018
Can I use my 'old style' 2011 (black plastic and silver lever) Brompton brake levers with this bar, or do I need new levers for the larger diameter bar?
Hi there,

Yes you can use your older levers with these bars.

What is the rise of this handlebar?
28 Jan 2018
Hi there,

Roughly 10cm from center of clamp to center of grip section. (Vertically)
