KHE Spypic: A-Blast handlebar
« on: March 01, 2010, 03:34:22 PM »
KHE Bikes is now on Twitter and posting some rather interesting news there from time to time. For example a pic of Adam Kun´s prototype handlebar called A-Blast which you can see on the left. It´s 9 inch high, has a classic shape and will be quite lightweight.

Agreed. Adam is way too good for Khe. Their parts are horrible. Welds are shotty, material is garbage and design is almost always severely flawed

Looks like the deep-bar!!!!

But, the deep-bar is looking much more how I like it. A bit of a remake. But Ok....

Hey Riders ! Take it easy  :mellow:

I wanted to design a simple, 2 piece type, clean looking strong handlebar.
Today's bars are too low for me, and I donít like the widths or the angles.
I wanted the crossbar not to be too low or too high either. I donít like the
high cross tube, and I need this rise for some of my tricks.
The back sweep and the upsweep are both my personal taste, this is how I like it.

Thanks
Adam Kun

Dude, go see an ophthalmologist. They look like Suelo bars. Take some Suelo bars, add a few degrees of back and upsweep... voila. KHE Anal Blast bars! -_-

Adam, there's no hate. We're just having some fun here, that's all. :ph34r:

Remember, grammar is the difference between "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse", and "I helped my uncle jack off a horse".

I just started getting into flatland stuff about 3 days ago and suck so far, I blame my sh*tty bike and lack of practice.

Yeah not bad, only thing i don't like is the drilling holes in the grip section... Totaly not needed, could be weak in my opinion... My Bram bars are the same and i had to cut them dowm cos they were to wide for me... But those holes make it harder to do this... Respect to adam for going with what he thinks is right... It's all about personal taste...  :P
