Odyssey Lumberjack bars get bigger

One of Odyssey’s more popular “big” handlebars just got bigger.

The new Lumberjack XXL bars are a full 9.8″ high and 30′ wide (both wider and taller than its predecessor the Lumberjack XL). Rounding out the spec sheet, these bars sport a 11° backsweep and 2° upsweep.

Other notables are multi-butted main tubing and Odyssey’s 41-Thermal Lifetime Warranty…which means, in layman’s terms, these bars will take whatever you throw at them.

Nice upgrade by Odyssey.

Tall stems: the next big thing?

Tall bars have been “a thing” for a while now…but is the next “big thing” to raise your front end…the tall stem?

It might be too early to call…but signs seem to be pointing that way.

Case in point, the new Summit Stem from Odyssey.

Punching in with a 45mm rise, this is one tall stem.

Whether you want to run more “regular size” bars or just maximize the height of your bike’s front end by pairing them with the tall bar du jour…this definitely adds another way to customize your ride to your particular specifications.

The rest of the deets:

  • 48mm reach
  • Special surface contouring & a larger bolt head spec for superior handlebar grip
  • Six bolt clamping configuration
  • Headset pre-load bolt recess (32mm diameter)
  • 6061-T6 aluminum, CNC machined
  • 13.4 oz (379 g)
