good grief, do you remember Sissy Bars? How the hell they got that name I don't know, however, here's an even worse application of them



 Tell me that's not just a moronic thing to put on a kids bike.


A sissy bar, also called a "sister bar" and sometimes "passenger backrest" is an addition to the rear of a bicycle or motorcycle that allows the rider or passenger to recline against it while riding.

Thanks Steve! Thanks Gary!

  1. Sissy bar was named because your buddy who would have to ride there was a sissy, and it would help keep him from falling off...

  2. Sissy also used to be slang for sister. It wasn't always a derogatory name to call a guy.

  3. I thought it was called that because kids were worried about falling off the back.

    I was told they were called that, because if you ever slid off the back of one of those things it snagged the family jewels it would make a sissy out of you.
