The District bars are high and wide, making them a perfect fit for street bikes that are usually built around low rigid forks, low head tubes, low integrated headsets and drop bmx stems. A few words about how this bar came about from Erenes: “We literally made hundreds of drawings and 3D simulations just to get the right look of the shape. We had to make special tools to manufacture this bar because everything is non-standard. Even if the bar is really wide its completely comfortable with the big backsweep. This bar really rules, especially for use with rigid forks!”
To make the Districts, we start by buying the very best Japanese cromoly that is available on the market. Next, the bars go through a complex process of multiple butting and shaping. We use our own specifically designed tools to get the unique shape and butting– note that all the bends have a large radius to minimise material deformation and get that special relaxed look. After that the bars go through a carefully controlled heat treating process, and later they are ready to get the high end finish using powder coat paint and decals under a clear coat of paint.
The District fits both BMX & MTB stems as they are 22.2 clamp size but the 25.4->22.2mm shims are included.
