[Cyclelicious] New comment on Wooden handlebars.

Ed W has left a new comment on your post "Wooden handlebars":

I understand, really, I do. Any excuse to post a photo of an attractive, partially clad woman should not be denied! Too bad she doesn't have some equally attractive shoes. One cannot have everything, can one?

Seriously, though, the cycling industry moved away from wooden components probably before the Second World War. I read somewhere that wood rims were the last to go, mainly because they offered an impalement hazard in a crash when the rims splintered.

For that reason, I'd be wary of wood handlebars. But then again, it's my destiny to break stuff.
