    Default handlebars

    Dear all,

    What is the meaning of "handlebars" in this context:

    [And a big drop Matt Annetts who sticks on a rock, and goes over the handlebars and tumbles down a cliff.]

    Matt is a snowboarder whose drop from a cliff was so bad. I know only one "handlebars" which of bikes! I can't get what does it mean here?

    Thanks.

    There are also snow scooters, a bit like snowboards, and these have handlebars

    Thanks. Actually I saw that on Google but the thing is that the competitor was really snowboarding (I'm sure, I saw him) It was snowboard not a scooter. I know what you mean, though.

    There is no other meaning?

    thanks.

    You're welcome! It must have been a scooter of something of the kind, "Handlebars" are bars to handle something, like a bike. Check on the word "handle".

    Have fun!

    It could also have been some sarcastic joke from the commentator, don't you think?
