Bottom Line:   

Too damn narrow for my taste. Came stock on my Klein Pulse, so I replaced it with a swanky green Control Tech bar... Aaaaah, much better. I guess it might be okay if you dont use barends. But I think its shitty to cut down the width to get a low gram count

Bottom Line:   

Nice bar, not the lightest on the market, but for the price, you can't go wronge.

Bottom Line:   

Very nice width and bend ( a real 5 degree). Light and stiff, not too costly, but maybe better for lighter riders. I think they claim that it is super tough, but I have heard things.

Bottom Line:   

I like this bar. Nothing great, just gets the job done. I don't notice the flex
that other reviewers are talking about. I don't have any creaking either. I
weigh 185 lbs., and rider hard as well. I've crashed on 'em a couple of times
and they're still straight. They seem o.k. to me., and if they really are 140
grams, they are among some of the lighter bars on the market.

Date Reviewed: June 10, 1996

Bottom Line:   

The handle bar is good and weighs about the same as some expensive brands.
It has lasted and has been very sturdy on tough rides. It is an all right
handle bar.

Date Reviewed: June 9, 1996

Bottom Line:   

This bar is pretty good, if you like a really tight cockpit. Ther is not much room. The down side is it's very flexy, and not in a cool titanium way. It is kind of sketchy, at least if you hammer or are a heavy rider.

Date Reviewed: April 9, 1996

Bottom Line:   

Light weight but they got crimped in the trick cutouts in my aftermarket stem. An okay product but keep an eye on clamped surfaces
