Bars & Shims

New Ti risers are available! Seen below at 800mm wide, 8 deg backsweep, 3 deg upseeep, 22mm rise. Longer center section to fit Shimzilla. Same cost as double bend Sweeper.

For those of you that love sweptback bars but don’t need or want riser bars behold the Meriwether Sweeper bars. Made from 3/2.5 Titanium these flat bars come in most any width and 14, 18, or 24 degree sweep. These are made for those of you that prefer flat bars or have trouble getting your bars low enough in relation to your saddle height. Lots of room along the straight section of the bars to mount accessories and strap bar bags to. ‘Microdot’ added on the centerline of the bar to help center a shim.

The double-bend Sweeper offsets some of the backsweep for those not wanting a shorter reach however only comes in one version with 20 degrees of backsweep (but at any width you want).

Weight = 380g for 800mm double bend. Please contact me before paying using the Paypal link so i can calculate and add shipping:  $200 (single bend), $250 (double bend)

Also available is Shimzilla, a 22 to 31.8mm shim with a 1/8″ porthole to center the shim on the bars as well as indicator lines to center the stem faceplate. These two things make it super easy to center the shim on the bar and stem on the shim. Unlike other bar shims there is room to clamp other stuff that need a 31.8mm bar such as a phone mount, GPS, light, bell…etc.  and without plastic adapters. The shim’s flat section is 3″ (76mm) wide and tapers for 1cm on either side. These also spread out the clamping force of the stem on the bar allowing us to make a lighter bar. Shimzilla or the PS shim included with the Sweeper bar. Shims fabricated in Durango, CO by Myth Cycles! Paypal link: $30 (includes shipping to US addresses)



Installation tips:

Setting them up with the shim centered is a bit of a pain initially. I spray a little carbogrip inside the shim to help the halves stay in place. First get the shim centered using the peephole and dot, then mark the bar with a thin sharpie along one or both sides of the shim so when you’re rotating the bar inside the shim it doesn’t get off center. Same with the halves of the shim – mark where that two halves / opening should be to match the stem clamp slot when sighting the bar from the side to get it at the angle you want. Then hold the shim in place while tightening up the stem faceplate
