Handlebars are extremely personal--everyone has a different take on the perfect width, amount of rise and backsweep, so what I like might not be what you need or want.

Sometimes to understand what something is, you have to see what it isn’t. This year Interbike is lacking the depth of weird inventions and pneumatic blonde booth babes that it has in the past.
