Will the Fred Bar fit on my bike?

The Fred Bar needs 15mm of vertical rise on the steerer tube to fit based on the height of The Fred Bar’s clamp. If you cut your steerer tube shorter than that, sorry! It won’t fit.

The Fred Bar is designed to fit around a steerer tube of 1.125 inches (1 and ⅛ of an inch) diameter. This is the standard steerer tube diameter size. Most bikes have a steerer tube with this diameter.

If your bike meets these requirements, The Fred Bar almost always fits. If you buy The Fred Bar and it doesn’t fit, send it back in as new condition for a full refund.
