told you already how much I loved the Bombadil as a larger than normal human. As you are aware, it shipped with Albatross bars and Tallux stem, which I had pretty closed to maxed out. Switched over to the bullmoose bosco this year at Brian's suggestion and it made a HUGE difference just generally tightening up the feel of the bike. Dumb sounding explanation, but actually works for someone with gorilla like arms! Also allowed for the stem to essentially be "slammed down" with only about an inch showing. Good design and great addition to the Bombadil and the description of the multitude of hand locations and being able to smoke a pipe while reading Ann Patchett are pretty spot on if you want to sit that straight and enjoy the ride! Thanks again for getting me into a great bike.

Installed the Bullmoose Bosco bars on my old Miyata mtb-turned-commuter. I have gone through three different handlebar setups over the past few months trying to find something I like.. flat bar, noodles, moustache bars.. and nothing was working for me on this bike. Installed the Boscos and I'm instantly in handlebar heaven. Perfect for commuting, the big wide bars are great, and the new upright position is perfect. Super stiff and strong, these bars couldn't fit my slightly-too-small, long top tube mtb conversion any better. Love these bars, amazing.
