Handlebar failure question(2 posts)

Handlebar failure questionScy
Mar 14, 2001 8:23 PM
Installed on my bike is a Scott LF 235 gram (claimed) bar. It's got 2 years and 3,000 miles on it. I've heard that such light bars should be replaced peridically. However, I don't know if this is the case only if you race. I've never heard of a handlebar failing outside of a crash. Does this really happen, or is it just being overcautious?

You would think that the manufacturer would put warning stickers if the bars really needed to be replaced periodically.
