These relaxed fit alloy handlebars are love at first ride. Swept enough for that desired upright ride, yet comfortable enough for all day riding regardless of the destination. As seen on our 2017 and newer Franklin & Bedford models.

I customized my Driggs 3 with these and couldn't be happier. I think the look is much nicer than the extreme swept-back curves on the stock handlebars (although it's just down to personal taste). It does mean that the grips are a little farther forward, but I found it easy to compensate by just raising the handlebars a little more (since the fork is angled, lifting them up also means they go back.)
Make sure you get the cables shortened to match or it will look silly.
I originally had swept back handle bars on my BBC but I didn't like how I had to ride extremely upright, and I didn't feel as though I had as much control. This year I switched to the Relaxed Ride Handlebars, and what a difference! I didn't install them myself, but it only cost me $20 to have a professional swap them out.
Need a good bike, go to the professionals, thank you
