    Strengths:    At almost 6 seasons of useage and a little over 9,000kms it's not let me down.

    Weaknesses:    None.

    Bottom Line:   
    This review is for a stock *Bontrager Race Modified 620 handlebar* that came on my 2001 Trek Fuel 90 Disk on July 02,2001. It's sofar the best handlebar I've used to date.
    Bottom Line: Plenty of space for Yeti softgrips, Hayes HFX 9 XC brake levers, Shimano Deore LX shifter pods, BLT Metrino 15 night light mounts, Planet Bike Protege 9.0 cyclocomputer and a Delta Air-Zound II horn!

    Strengths:    Light.

    Weaknesses:    Light, weak, expensive

    Bottom Line:   
    This bar will probably not break right away but you should be careful using lightweight products like this. After 2 years of abuse on my xc-bike there were a clear mark from the stem. This don't happen with properly dimensiend bars (like a cheap ritchey flat-bar).

    Strengths:    Not a featherweight but no pig. Very strong bars, I'm a clydesdale. Bontrager knows his stuff!

    Weaknesses:    No thank you.

    Bottom Line:   
    Great set of bars, they feel good and have no flex issues. They are pretty cheap to replace if you crash them. Although I have crashed them pretty hard and they are still as good as new. Solid performer for the money. For you weight geaks try one of this h-bar's lighter brothers.

    Strengths:    strong, light

    Weaknesses:    none

    Bottom Line:   
    Its an handle bar, and it does a good job. What else is there to say? Wide for leverage. Better for us big guys who need a 600 mm bar. Good value.
