ProsComfort
Great geometry, and very comfortable. Bought to replace a pair of standard issue flat bars on my touring bike. I was pleasantly surprised by how much difference the rise and a gentle sweep back made to my riding. My only query is in the fact that they are easily scuffed compared to the other black bars I use (on other bikes).
Bars For Brompton

Prosvery comfortable
These bars are now on my Brompton to stay. They have replaced the rather bizarre bars fitted as standard to my P type which I just couldn't live with. The slight backward sweep makes the folded package slightl wider, but thats a small price to pay for the extra comfort and control these excellent bars give me. A really well thought out design and good quality. I am now considering a pair on my dropped bar tourer. Very speedy service from sjs
Fantastico!

ProsREALLY COMFY!
Excellent bars, alloy, light, strong, simple and a great, great shape, sweeping back and round slightly, (18 degrees apparently), with a small rise. I use mine with Ergon GP1 biocork grips and am deliriously happy and comfy on my touring bike setup. I previously had straight riser bars which, although being very symmetrical, gave me issues in the shoulder/neck area after a few hours. These Thorn bars offer a more relaxed riding position and it now feels like my chest can open out more, easier breathing, more comfortable posture in the upper body area generally. (I'm a yoga teacher so am quite aware of this). From looking at old school Californian mountain bike photos from the 70's, back when the sport was just being invented, I'd imagine the handlebars were probably more like this.

ConsOne pair is not enough
ProsReally comfortable
tI brought these bars to replace the drops on my Tourer but I am still struggling to do that because my bike was designed for me with drops.So I have instead fitted them to my old Ridgeback mountain bike and what a difference they have made.They are so unbelievably comfortable that if I do decide to fit them to the Tourer I will now have to buy another pair.

Well they are what they say, Comfort bars. Great. Try them without bar ends you may find bar ends are not needed.

Can I Use These Bars With A 31.8 Clamp And A Shim?
By
01 Apr 2016
I already have these bars on another bike, and they are my most comfortable. I can't find anything else comparable and have only recently bought a new stem, so don't want to change it yet.
SJS Customer Service:
Hi, yes you can use the bars with a shim on a 31.8mm stem, the shim that you can use is Part Code 24381. Regards
Suitable Gear Shifter And Brake Lever

Will Shimano Tiagra 4600 Double 10sp Flatbar Shifter and Shimano Tiagra R550 Brake Levers for flat bars fit on these handle bars
SJS Customer Service:
Hi,

Both of these parts should be fine for use on these bars. These handlebars use a 22.2mm grip area which is the same as all flat bars and the same as used by the clamps on these brakes and shifters.

Thanks.
