Strengths:    Well, it's an Easton...white & yellow graphics are, sutle not too flashy. I don't need my bar full of brand labels or designs. Length of bar (685mm) is perfect for me. It's of medium weight which is okay with me too. It's really stiff (31.8mm) and doesn't flex much which I like. Doesn't creak or make noises either. I also have a matching EA 70 alloy stem that holds the bar securely & is a solid steer/control combo setup. The price is great too. Check ebay, Jenson USA or Pricepoint for the money saving deals on the EA 50 bars!

Weaknesses:    It's may not be carbon(overated) or feather weight enough for 'dem weight weenies. Perhaps not flashy enough graphics? Unless you're a professional racer or sponsored hot dog who cares?!

Bottom Line:   
Why should I bother upgrading a Diamondback mtb? It's because I have to like(enjoy) this bike because my mother bought it for me for Christmas. Isn't that cute? It has sentimental value & I just Love it, for real?! I just make the most of it, y'know!! Good value, Easton quality...for $20 it's really an awesome value. I can always switch it up or keep it as a backup. It may not have the fancy pancy decal design or "state of the art" color graphic scheme. However, it is a solid dependable aluminum mtb bar. Also, remember this. All those "Brand" name decals & stickers people put on their bikes, helmets, vehicles etc. won't make you a better rider(bicyclist). Only your ability, equipment & intelligence will.

Strengths:    Low weight, very stiff. Great upgrade from my stock alum 1.5 rise bar. Was looking for something with extra width. This is bar can and will stand up to the abuse.

Weaknesses:    Not carbon....but that's about it.

Bottom Line:   
Best bar for the price, if you can't find this bar for 17.00 dollars, pay up to 50.00. Its worth it.

Strengths:    Low rise is a big improvement over my straight handle bar. It it a little long but it is nice because I like that it allows me to mount my Garmin eTrex, Cycle Computer and headlight with out getting too cluttered. It is extremely light weight.

Weaknesses:    A little long but could be cut down.

Bottom Line:   
Cheap light weight riser bar. You can't go wrong with this economic bar.
