I wanted to get thoughts on a peotential build and ideas of what people have done previously for making a handlebar for the uni.
My idea is nothing new, it’s putting a bike stem on the seatpost and connecting it to some handlebars or Aero bars.
I can get pretty fast on my 29" and can lean forward with the bumpers but when Unipacking I have an issue with the weight of my pack stopping my forward lean.
I’ve used a handlebar in the past from Flansberium but but ended up learning to ride without it.
I was looking to do something light weight if possible and to keep the build under $100CAD. I also help out at a bike co-op so cheap handlebars are readily available for me and I can source a stem online for pretty cheap.
Also the mental image of some drop bars or bull horn bars on the uni is really appealing for some reason lol.
Another option would be a 150mm stem (same size as the Qu-Ax bar, cut down a set of bars to attach a set or Aero bars too the handle to give me my leverage.
If I can use something compact like this, bonus points for that.
So questions for the community:
What builds did you guys use in this style that didn’t add much weight to the uni?
Any specific do’s and don’ts?
What length of stem did people use? I’m going to measure my 29 to see the approximate length I’d like, but preferably I’d like it to not interfere with the bumper for slower riding where more control is needed.
