Our friends at Forager Cycles in Washington are back with another handlebar, this time geared more toward everyday riding than their debut Oyster Bar. The new Forager Cycles Jemmy Bar is designed to be at home on ’80s and ’90s ATBs and modern tourers alike, and it features ample room for bag straps, accessories, and alternate hand positions. It’s been tested on rugged off-road tracks and city rides alike.
The Jemmy (Aussie slang for crowbar) is made in Forager’s Port Townsend workshop and is powder coated by the crew at Stunt Doubles Color in Seattle. It’s built from full 4130 chromoly steel tubing with a 22.2mm clamp diameter. It features 35mm of rise, 27 degrees of bacskweep, 6 degrees of upsweep, and is 850mm wide but can be cut down to around 740mm while maintaining a 185mm grip area. It weighs in at 595 grams uncut. Note that it’s not rated for downhill use.
There are two colors in this first production run, Raw Clear Coat/Yellow Cedar and Rainbow Chrome/Black. Both are priced at $170, and the pre-order goes live at 9 a.m. Pacific today. Bars will ship the week of May 9th.
You can find more details and pre-order a Jemmy Bar at ForagerCycles.com.
