Wald 872 vs 867 Touring Handlebars – Made in USA – BikemanforU

http://www.youtube.com/bikemanforu Wald 872 and 867 touring handlebars offer subtle differences for the discerning rider. Free shipping http://www.bikemanforu.com on bike parts, tires, tools, and cycling accessories. Cruiser aficionados will like the 24-inch wide spacing on the 872,. The wing-shape and three-inch rise make them an excellent replacement choice for sprucing up a vintage cruiser or turning a mountain bike into a multi-speed upright comfort ride. The 867 is worth considering if you’re converting from drop-down to an upright position on a road bike. Great for a fixie conversion or leave the shifters on the downtube of your vintage 10 or 12-speed. These bars won’t get in the way of panniers and give good access for reaching to the downtube. If ou like an uncluttered cockpit, you won’t worry about trying to make room for brake levers, grips, and bar shifters. Both are made of chromed steel (bling!) with a one-inch clamp diameter and standard 7/8 diameter in the grip area. They’re not super light, but does that really matter with a vintage bike?

    Extremely helpful. Thanks so much for posting this!

    the cool thing about these bars is that you can use barend shifters in them.

    Uprights are so cool, but those are heavy AF! Aluminum uprights are all I use on¬† my bike. I don’t know why the hell people want to ride all hunched over just cruising around town and commuting. I switched to uprights about six years ago.

    These are great handlebars. Gotta love the chrome too.

  6. Mark Sconce on July 30, 2019 at 1:53 am

    Is there enough space for grips, brake levers, and shifters or do you almost have to use bar end shifters? What is the straight length of the ends where the grips go before the bars begin to bend?

    Wald has a nice look but not in black…..?

    Wald 867 bars are some of my favourites. I think I’ma little more into the Wald 8095, which Wald calls "Touring," and they’re sort of a "Northroad" type of bend. FWIW, Wald markets neither the 867 nor the 872 as "Tour;" Wald catalogs referred to them as "Cruiser style" and, BITD, the 867 was sometimes referred to as the "Scout" bend. The Touring bars, in Wald-speak, are the 8095 and the 815 bar, which is a really nice bend for Polo…

    I really liked your presentation, until I found out there for bycycle’s man I thought I had found my bars for a second.

    Nice job BikeMan showing the quality & value of parts made in our US of A. I always go out of my way to buy "Made in America" & support our great Nation whenever possible. Even if the price a little bit more, the ultimate cost is less.

    If not; Taiwan is better than China, China is our enemy-face facts! Germany-good. Italy-good. Japan-good. England-good. Countries that burn our American Flag-stop buying oil or anything from them!!!!

    There. Not sorry I said it. Sorry I had to say it. BikeSnobGuy.

    You are an excellent teacher. Thanks for the video.

  18. Karl Ruehs on July 30, 2019 at 2:32 am

    BikeMan, I’d like to send you a pair of "All American" bike shorts from "Aero Tech Designs Cyclewear" to review and keep. All on my dime (only $39.99 on sale)!

    They are made in Pensylvania, USA, with American fabric, American thread, American chamios, American printed label and Red White & Blue trim.

    I don’t work for the company but I will be a customer soon. Why buy $30 junk Chinese knock-offs when you can support the home team & get the good stuff? Don’t take my word, let BikeMan (King Solomon of bikes) be the judge!

    Thx, from BikeSnobGuy.

    Does one need a stem with a face plate, or can these bars be thread through a normal stem. I’m asking because of the tight bends on some of them ……thanks !

  20. dehoe disc on July 30, 2019 at 2:32 am

    Thanks for your excellent presentation of the Wald handlebars, I have chosen the Wald #872 and that works for me. (in black finish, not chrome plated.)

  21. JENDALL714 on July 30, 2019 at 2:33 am

    ¬†I¬†don’t understand how Wald stays in business, their handlebars are less than $20, far below imported Chinese crap and better quality! This kills the reason why manufacturers say they have to go overseas to China, which is to sell it cheaper to the consumer. You can download Wald’s entire catalog on http://www.Waldllc.com, they sell a whole¬†line of bicycle products, not just handlebars! I just bought an original Schwinn and I am going to outfit it with all Wald parts, it will still be original because Wald made all their parts anyway! Why spend $100 on rusted crappy old vintage¬†Schwinn parts, when you can still buy the exact part from Wald brand new!

    Awesome video as always!

  23. lromeroyt on July 30, 2019 at 2:36 am

    Mike man! question please! I want to convert my hybrid bike into a Dutch-bike. I think I need a longer stem and to change the handlebar. What else should it be considered? thanks for your recommendations.
