Strengths: Bars are light weight, strong and confidence inspiring.
Weaknesses: Long out of the box
I put these on my bike last spring. I bought them because they were cheap and the red matched my mountain bike. I cut an inch off each end and they are still wider than the stock bars I had on. Once I got use to the wider width, these bars have been great. No flex or any other problems at all. Plus I got mine for $42 and they have performed excellent.
