Strengths:    This bar is stiff.Answer nailed the angles. it is wide when you get it out of the box, but you can cut it down if you do not like a wide bar.

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
Motocross riders have been riding with a wide bar forever. It works! Try it for a few weeks and you will find stability. It is tight on switchbacks, but it just takes a few rides to know how to handle it. Great bar. Best I have ever used.

Strengths:    Strong build, great finish quality and durability.

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
Bought this handlebar based on numerous reviews that loved its sweep and rise. I find it perfect, and have enjoyed it ever since I through it on. The finish seems to not scratch easily, and has survived multiple brake, shifter adjustments w/o any sign of wear.

Strengths:    Low, Wide, Strong, Style.

Bottom Line:   
This is a great price on a top of the line DH bar. At a length of 780mm out of the box, this bar allows the ability to try a really wide-low setup and then dial in the width after a few rides. I wasn't sure how wide I wanted to go, and ended up cutting down to 740mm until I found the right comfort for my size and riding style. However, it was educational to try out a 780mm width (about 31") to know for sure what I like to ride. Essentially the same as the Pro Taper AM bar in design, I went with the DH version because of the color selection. The all gold bar matches my Answer stem and grips. The bar performs, I've used it for AM/DH riding on intermediate jumps and drops with no problems. So far I am impressed with the full line of Answer products, and run the stem, grips, and pedals on my bike as well. I suppose it is on par with the higher end Easton bars at about 2/3 the price.
