For Collective Reward #094, we’re giving away two pairs of recently released Curve Remlaw handlebars, which are optimized to offer the same reach as a drop bar but with the comfort and control of a flat bar. Find details here…

Following their giveaways of a GMX+ frameset and two sets of Walmer handlebars, our friends at Curve Cycling (@curvecycling) in Melbourne, Australia, are back for their third Collective Reward. This time around, they’ll be hooking two Bikepacking Collective members up with a pair of their recently released Remlaw (yep, that’s Walmer backward) handlebars, which were designed to provide the same reach as a drop bar, but with the comfort, simplicity, and control of a flat bar.

Curve Remlaw Bar Review, flat bars for drop-bar bikes

In case you missed Logan’s review last month, he spent some time riding the Remlaws and found their ample 800mm width conducive to multiple hand positions, their 12° backsweep comfortable on long rides, and the generous 31.8mm clamp area perfect for mounting bikepacking bags without straps sliding around. He concluded that they offer more confidence and control than drop bars, are cleverly engineered, and offer an interesting alternative to traditional flat or drop bars (though they admittedly won’t be for everyone). We know our Bikepacking Collective is full of fellow tinkerers, hopefully a couple of whom will end up with a set of Remlaws of their own!
