White with timber bars - handmade by me!!

I saw some crazy wooden bars and thought I might be able to make my own set. Had a piece of timber in the shed, and hey presto - worked a treat! Fitted them to a Bontrager stem on a fantastic white machine with a coaster brake perfect for the pub or commuting!!! I whacked an Astro Boy sticker on the front for added cool.....

I think a leather or black

I think a leather or black saddle would look nice on that. also swap out the black stem to a chrome one.
foot retention wouldn't hurt either.
but good job on those bars, they look very nice


Normally I'm not a fan of this sort of thing, but you've done a nice job here. I especially appreciate the flat grip areas of the bar, but the gap I see from the center of the bar into the stem is just too scary. If you were able to take a lathe and make the center of the bar round and then flatten it out as it got to the ends, you could sell them to the hipsters online and make a million!


coaster brake, risers, platform pedals...look the look

a lovely idea/piece of wood...

but is the possibility of those things snapping in half and you smashing your face into the ground really worth whatever aesthetic advantage you might gain? think about THAT...
