Surly Truck Stop Handlebar
Surly came out with the Truck Stop Bar. The Truck Stop is an Aluminum Drop Bar that has 30 mm of rise to it. It’s the perfect solution for getting a little more bar height on your legacy mtb or old pugsley that you wanna switch over and run drop bars. The Truck Stop comes in three widths – 42, 45, and 48cm. They’re not a bad deal at $60 Clams. Running drop bars on your legacy fat-bike or MTB just got a little easier and more comfortable.
