Ruined a pair or two of perfectly good sets of Q-bars only so you could use a dated detangler system (rotor/spin tech) and a regular rise stem. Then again, i remember one pic of Puentes ride with INVERTED stem AND cut Q-bars. Can you say "low". smile

I know.. smile
I remember Puente and Brandt riding  like that.
He was rocking the 92 Ground Master... inverted DK (carved out for gyro clearance), and cut-Q's.
Super low.   One of my riding buddies had his Pro Compe set up the same way.  it really gave you no leverage over the bike at all.  The short bars made a fairly light bike feel like it weighed about 200 lbs.  Getting that back end off the ground for a hang-5 was quite a challenge.

So true.
And when you're 6'3 the thing made even less sense, lol! I totally remember how hard it was to just lift the rear end off the ground, say a hang-5 etc. On top of that, the center bar (of Qbars) would crush in, it simply couldn't take the clamp torque of the stem. And that's when they startes to slip. But.. it was fun ..for a short while and definitely gave the bike hardcore-to-tha-bone looks.

While this is about (obsession) on handlebars here's a few pics from my vault.
These handlebars that are not on my bikes. The goal is to build a bike around each bar.. haha! yeah.. sure is big_smile

Re: letts see your bars ! I have a handlebar obsession.

I knew you would have the raddest handlebars timo !

peregrine realley diddnt have such good quality control on those bars back in the day ,
I got a set that have a third crossbar welded on crooked like one pair of yours does too.
and another pair I have are slightly "twisted"   so to have the grip tubes at 90. to the front tire,  the stem needs to be pointing slightly to the left.   

ill be back with more pix.

Re: letts see your bars ! I have a handlebar obsession.

Yeah indeed some of the Q bars were terrible quality wise and i believe there must have been about a dozen versions all with tiny differences in details and specs due to change of manufacturers.
Thanks.
