No Handlebar.. was a low sec prirate alliance founded in May 2015 and shut down operations in September 2018. At its height it had over 300 pilots and held its own in numerous fights against the likes of Snuffed Out, Shadow Cartel, Panic Attack and Siege Green. It was known for famously having no blues and willing to take risky fights. It earned the respect from friends and foes by always trying to have a good fights, which often involved down-shipping to even the odds or deciding to not use its significant capital fleet in the interest of a good fight!
