Its basically a push-up bra for your handlebar bag...

Taking the place of a 1/2" spacer directly underneath the stem on any 1 1/8" steerer, it supports your handlebar bag, providing extra strength and rigidity to avoid flop when riding rough trail with all the goodies in your bag. The T-Bar saves your bag and frame from paint scuffs and tears; and relieves pressure on the brake/shift cables that can make any bag setup a drag. Clean up your cockpit and support your goods with a T-Bar!

Tech Specs

The rowdy gravel bike that combines speed and confidence with adaptability and style.

Slack head tube angle and longer front center allows for stability and confidence over loose, steep, and rough terrain. A seat tube angle that's neither slack nor steep allows for a broad range of fit and position options. If all day adventures and bikepacking is your jam, there's plenty of room to be more upright. If stomping the pedals and getting down in the drops is more your speed, then slam that seat forward and that stem down and you've got a gravel race speed demon.

An investment like a high-quality hand made bicycle should be versatile and resilient. We use some form of adjustable dropout on all of our models. The Sauce uses Paragon Machine Works’ Rocker dropout to achieve adjustable chainstay length and axle/brake compatability across a variety of standards. Set it up geared and dial in chainstay length for quick and nimble or stable and comfy, or go singlespeed to embrace simplicity and let the tensioned chain length fall where it may.

We designed the Sauce around the types of riding we like to do on larger-tire drop bar bike. The heart of the build is centered a chainstay yoke that allows for a standard road spacing crank with up to a 44t Single Chainring or a compact double, and still leaves plenty of mud clearance around a 700x50 or 29x2.0 Tire. Big Tires for Big Gravel.
