Wheelie poppers rejoice! The new Sunset Bar handlebar from the Minnesota bike deviants, Surly Bikes, is both wide (820mm) and tall (110mm rise). This new bar resembles a huge, wide BMX bar that would be perfect for cyclists who prefer an upright riding position.

The New Sunset Bars are a play on the earlier Sunrise Bars that Surly released back in 2019. But, when Surly set out to make this bar with more back sweep, upsweep, and rise.

Being upright and durable, this bar would be great for that old 90s MTB with low stack height or a low steer tube that you’ve been eyeballin’ in the corner of the garage. Or even for a bike put together solely with spare parts out of the “magic parts bin” in the other corner of the garage.
