Sourcing 31.8 handlebars with 40-50mm rise and 15°-25° sweep

Hi - I am having trouble sourcing handlebars. I want to ride upright with as little pressure on my wrists as possible to avoid worsening a wrist injury (inflamed tendon exacerbated by arthritis) I got from riding in a too forward position for just a couple of weeks. After a year of not riding the wrist is somewhat better, but not healed. The bike clinic at my doctor's office recommends handlebars with 40-50mm of rise and 15°-25° of sweep. They must have 31.8 mm clamp diameter for my e-bike. I've tried 3 bike shops, Google and eBay.

Though perhaps you are having trouble finding the particular ones you want in stock. That's just the signs of the times since COVID disrupted the supply chains. But many were showing in stock that I looked at.

Modern bike appears to have silver in stock, they might have black also, but I didn't look...

Thanks! As I mentioned in a post a minute ago, it was at Universal Cycles that I found one. I didn't know enough to use the terms in your search.

You will want to make sure that your handlebar is cut down to size at around shoulder width, and try using those ergonomic grips which you can angle to allow for a straight wrist position.

Wake 31.8mm


Delta Design


Functional for those of us who change height and set-back to placate the old bones which start screaming
