This Salsa Woodchipper 2 Handlebar is no longer available although you may find similar or newer versions below:
The Woodchipper rides well on any surface and provides a multitude of comfortable hand positions. The bars bend along three planes to create extra wide lowers while keeping a shallow drop.
While the majority of handlebars are bent along two planes, the top and drop, the Woodchipper is bent a third time, along the transition plane (between the top and drop). This gives extra-wide drops, but still allows for comfortable mounting of road shift and brake levers.
The result is an ergonomic, comfortable and stable handlebar with more possible hand positions than comparable off-road drop bars.
Salsa have also graduated the extralong drops for easy sizing and cutting.
Follow the stem manufacturer’s specifications with regard to torque. If none are given, tighten 4–5 Nm.
Road bars are curved to offer a multitude of positions to suit the terrain. When climbing in the saddle you will often ride on the tops which are the part of the bar either side of the stems clamping point. When out of the saddle on climbs or accelerating you will often ride on the lever hoods mounted at the front of the bars curved section. For higher speeds you will find yourself on the drops, which offer a lower more aerodynamic position. Road bars come in a variety of widths, from 36cm wide up to 44cm, a good guide for bar width is your shoulder width, a bar should not be narrower than your shoulders as this can close up your chest, but they should not be so wide that you are creating a large frontal area. Road handlebars come in two clamp sizes, 31.8mm which is oversized and 26/25.8mm which is standard, it is essential that you get the correct clamp size for your stem as a poor fit will slip round. Road bars also come in different shapes and depths, with various bends for ergonomic reasons, some will also feature grooves in the material for your brake and gear cables to slot into, this helps to keep the bar round once tape is applied. Then there is the all-in-one bar and stem systems from brands such as Cinelli's Ram 2 and the Pro Stealth which offer clean lines and look great with their exposed carbon finish.
Ah, the little things in life that make it oh-so grande! Ice cream in pints, sunny winter days, new shoes, freshly zamboni'd ice, a crisp apple, clean sheets straight from the dryer, a cold beer on a hot day, a new trail, peace and quiet, remote control cars, making your child giggle, a glass of wine with a nice dinner...the list goes on. We can't promise you that our bell or waterbottle cage will get you up or down the hill any faster, but we can say that they are stylin', fun, and just plain tasty. They are some of the little things in life.
