Ask Bike Hugger: Womens and Boys Bars

Reader Amy wrote to ask

Hi Bike Hugger, I’m not sure if you will have an answer for my question (or if you even answer questions) but do you know where I can find a good Women’s Fit drop bar and headset? I have a Marin mountain bike and I absolutely love their thinner handlebar made just for us ladies but they only sell a flatbar. I was hoping to fit my road bike with a thinner drop bar but all I can seem to find are boys drop bars. Thank you for your help! Amy

Thanks for writing. Women’s fit is always an issue. To your question, Mark V replied

Unfortunately, there is no women’s bar to replace the boy’s bar on that Marin…but I do know a gay bar that might work for you! Seriously, take the bike into a decent bike shop for help.
