This presents a bicycle handle assembly, more particularly to a bicycle handle assembly of which the position of the handle grip can be freely adjusted according to the need of the rider, enabling the rider to ride the bicycle in a comfortable position.

The handle assembly is used both for controlling the direction of movement and for maintaining balance for the bicycle. If the bicycle riders are holding and repeating the same posture over and over for a long period of time, wrists are going to have concentrated load which leads to cause pain or even injury such as nerve damage or cartilage wear.

Moreover, since the riding posture is fixed regardless of the riding conditions, there may be fatigue caused in other parts of the body besides the wrists, such as the back, legs, shoulders, neck, etc.

To resolve the problems in the above, an aspect of this design aims to provide a bicycle handle assembly of which the position of the handle grip can be freely adjusted according to the need of the rider, enabling the rider to ride the bicycle in a comfortable posture.

To achieve the above objective, an aspect of the present invention provides a bicycle handle assembly that includes: a stem prepared on a front-wheel fork of a bicycle; a handlebar installed on the stem; a handle grip coupled to either end of the handlebar; a ball joint prepared between the handlebar and the handle grip to enable the handle grip to rotate; and a securing element installed on the ball joint to secure the handle grip in a particular position.

The handle grip can be adjusted freely by way of the ball joint and the handle grip an be secured in a particular position by way of the securing element. Thus, an embodiment of the present invention makes it possible to freely adjust the positions of the handle grips according to the need of the rider, thereby distributing the load that may otherwise be concentrated on the wrists and preventing pain and injury Also, since the rider can assume various postures according to riding conditions, the burden on other parts of the body, such as the back, legs, shoulders, neck etc., can be reduced.
