    Strengths:    Looks, price, weight

    Weaknesses:    ...nope

    Bottom Line:   
    The value is outstanding! Theyre nicer than the easton ec90 and that bar is 100 bucks! I sawed off 1.25 inches on each end so my total length is 20.5 (makes for more agile handling) this bar is awesome. No problems with my ergon mp1 grip clamps, either... no complaints, I love answerproducts

    Strengths:    -Very Stiff feel
    -Absorption qualities
    -Hot Looks
    -Great Value
    -Good weight loss

    Weaknesses:    None

    Bottom Line:   
    Fantastically light, looks fantastic and feels even better. Over rough stuff I find the handle bars absorb some of the vibrations etc. There is less stress feeling in my hands/arms post ride thanks to the bars.

    They are darn stiff indeed, feel stiffer than my Titec Hellbents anyday! Light weight is great too!

    Strengths:    Very stiff, great looking, very light

    Weaknesses:    the desing is a bit disco, could be improved (not as good looking as Easton)

    Bottom Line:   
    I bought this handle bar as a replacement for a faulty Profile. This bar is light and could easly be considered the best flat carbon bar out there. The only bar that I would change this one with is a Easton Monkey Lite (carbon) Riser but my stem (old classic Syncros) will not let me do that... Bottom line I have absolutely no complains with this product.

    Strengths:    Sweet looks, weighs the same as Easton EA70 carbon, less expensive for me match price with Performance. Strong, stiff and did I say sweet looking.

    Weaknesses:    The scary warning on the bars (everywhere) about not overtightening and no using bar ends. I don't use them anyway.

    Bottom Line:   
    I got a great deal and I needed another bar. I am glad I puurchased the product and it matches the FSA stem to a "T"
