Strengths:    Durable, light and good looking. Affordable.

Weaknesses:    None.

Bottom Line:   
I was looking to buy a Easton handlebar but instead I bought this from an online seller on Facebook. I tried checking for some reviews like I usually do before buying a part and they mostly had bad things to say about it. I was on a budget so I thought it can't be that bad. When it arrived it was really light even with the packaging so I was skeptical about it's durability. I also tried hitting it with my fingers so I could gauge the thickness and it was really thin. I already bought it so I just installed it. It put me on the edge at first but now that I'm used to it I can fairly say that it is a durable HB that can take some beating. I weigh 210 lbs and do XC over some very rough terrain. I also have to jump over potholes and rocks and never has this bar flex or failed me. I am now a Funn convert. I think I'll buy there Funn Hooka DH crank next since it cost half of what I would pay for a Shimano Saint.

Strengths:    Really nicely made bar, finish is great and for the very nice, low price the bar is under 300g. Love the angles on it, up sweep and back sweep are just right for me and the 750mm width was an epiphany for me coming from 685mm wide bars on all my bikes.

Weaknesses:    None I can find. Well actually only problem is now I need 2 or 3 more for my other bikes.

Bottom Line:   
Fantastic bar for the $$, don't think there's anything else in this price range under 300g, heck even the bars close to $100 are only around this weight and not sure if their build quality is any better to be honest. So if you're looking for a nice wide, light bar that is under $40 this should definitely be one you look at.

So I took my first ride on my new Fat Boy today!!!

My brother in law bought a fat bike last fall and kept telling me I had to get one. I currently own a Ventana El Padrino HT 29er and a Ibis Ripley FS 29er. So I was in my LBS last week and was actually looking at a Giant XTC Advanced 27.5 HT. I have a local trail that I think would be a lot of fu ... Read More »

Demo'd the Fat Boy today. Still torn about rigid vs Bluto

Tried to get a reading on tire pressure, but that was probably not accurate. My friend is running tubeless, and I was probably around 5psi. On the climb, which was just a little bumpy, I was thinking that I missed a rear shock more than the front, and would probably be happy without the Bluto. Th ... Read More »
