Creator: Todd Downs | 2010-09-28

    Not what was promised

    0 1/5 BillBK - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Bell Sports 109512 Brake Fix Bicyle Cable Set Am I the only person who would think that when you buy a brake cable set for a bicycle, it would mean 2 cables - one for each brake. Product arrived and was only one cable. In addition, the product description was listed as: "Brake Fix Brake Cable Set, Double Ended Fits Most Common Bicycle Brakes, Easy To Install, Comes With Extra Ferrules & End Cap". Package did NOT come with extra ferrules & end cap. Not worth sending it back. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 22, 2013

    Tough to beat!

    0 4/5 Daniel V.Garrett - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Bell Sports 109512 Brake Fix Bicyle Cable Set These cables are truly tough to beat for the price. When fixin' up the neighbors kid's bicycle and they being a single parent who really can't afford to spend money on such things, especially when food & rent are the big worries for them and you can't afford to spring for those designer-type cables for 3 or 4 times as much you get'em these Bell cables. They work just great and make everyone concerned happy AND the kid will be safe again. And that's what its all about ain't it? 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 4, 2013

    Awesome.

    0 5/5 jorge montelongo - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Pure Fix Cycles Untaped Bull Horn Handlebars (Sports) I ride my bike fixed gear, these handle bars are nice and sturdy, made a huge difference going from a riser bar to bullhorns. The bars themselves are finished very nicely (got the white ones) they look so good without tape on them I've just been riding them without the tape. Overall it is a very good product at a great price. I ride mostly urban areas and a few big hills here and there, i weigh about 170lbs and haven't felt anything in the bars suggesting they are weak especially when I hit my cadence going up a steep hill. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 18, 2013

I wasn't the fan of the original handle bars my bike came with, and these ones makes it way better and easier to ride.

    Great Riser Handlebars

    I purchased this product for my friend's bike, which I am rebuilding as a surprise present while he is out of the country. After searching almost every bike place around Chicago—where we live—and all the bike websites I know of, I decided on Fure Fix's chiefly because of three main factors: 1) dimensions & color, 2) price, 3) they are almost exactly like the pair we saw on a bike last summer, which he told me he'd like on his ride someday. The bars were shipped exactly on the day they were advertised. The product was well wrapped in packaging and were in mint condition when removed from the box. They fit perfectly within the bike's original stem that is over 30 years old. Once tightened, they do not move around and feel completely secure when I put pressure onto the bars, head tube and fork. They look AWESOME on the bike and completely alter the presentation of the ride—all for the better! I would totally recommend this product to anyone that is looking for a... 5/5 KJD - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Feels like a more expensive bar.

    0 5/5 Morgan - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Pure Fix Cycles Riser Handlebars (Sports) The bar is iso standard size, so it will probably fit your stem. It's very narrow, which I like, but it may be too narrow for some. If you run a brake (or both) you might not have enough room for the brake lever clamps and your grips. I run a brake, but I used bar tape for grips do I had no length issues. Very lightweight aluminum, but still strong. It's built very well also. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 17, 2014
