The Midge handlebars are a unique take on drop bars, ideal for road or mountain bike use. 'Variety is the spice of life' they say, so the Midge bars give you a variety of hand / arm positions to reduce fatigue when riding. Plus, they look cool, too! Full Description
The midge bars take STI road controls / levers, clamp on oversized 31.8mm road and MTB stems and provide a much shallower drop than most drop bars on the market. This is ideal for anyone who loves the racy look, but wants to maintain a more upright riding position. You can therefore ride the drop much more of the time and have full access to the brake levers.
Youll descend steep stuff with more confidence than you ever imagined - some siders claim they descend faster with these bars than on a regular flat bars. Sweet, eh?! By giving you more hand options, it also helps reduce muscle and nerve fatigue and pain mixing it up helps the body endure longer, harder rides. Even if youre just cruising the promenade on your classic fixie, the Midge bars give a strong and distinct look that looks mighty dapper on your bicyclismo!

Great service as usual, great bars - might be a bit unusual for some but great mix of positions for gravel/mixed riding
Excellent as usual. No problems with service.
Great comfort for the daily commute.
Good as usual, I would recommend them and buy from them again. It would be good to not have to spend 50 to get free delivery and I am wary of the quality of some the brands they sell - jacobsons for one.
Trouble free service, fast reasonable shipping!
has all ways been good
Awesome bars. Fitted them to my cyclo-cross steed. Looked pretty funky when installing the bars, but looks can be deceiving.Bars are super comfy and have the flare at the bottom gives the control that inspires supreme confidence that wasn't there with regular drop bars.Definitely worth considering, especially for the price. Shame they aren't available in carbon.
Bars were shipped quickly at a reasonable cost.
Perfect bats for what I was after. Good price too.
PlanetX are great for parts I need, in fact the only place that stocked the particular part I was looking for. Everything was perfect until Yodel delivered my item, where they didnt bother to leave a card to tell me where they'd left it.Thankfully PlanetX came through again with a quick reply and a answer to where it was left from their tracking info. SummaryPlanetX great, Yodel crap.
Service is fine: fast and good transport
My own fault: I didn't look good enough at the dimensionsof the handlebar. The size of the drop-ends is on the short side. I haven't riden it yet (it's *really* shitty weather here in the Netherlands now), but I think the ends are too short for me.
Seen quite a bit of grumbling about Planet X service. No problem whatsoever for me. Still top notch, especially for collection from store.
New classic in Dirt Drop Bar category. Shame it is not available in 25.4mm clamp anymore. It would be ideal to have a tad longer drops with ergo counter bend.
Brilliant communication from start to finish and great prices with speedy delivery. What more can you ask for?
Brilliant bars, super comfy. These bars have allowed me to ride my drop bar bike (genesis - croix de fer) on some seriously technical terrain. Oh and the price, how do they make them for the price. These bars are far superior to anything in this price range and are on a level with much more expensive bars. Well done On-one.
Excellent product - fast shipping - great communication - would definitely use again, thanks
Very good price/quality, will recommend!
