Strengths:    Absorb vibration, light, strong, 5 year warranty.

Weaknesses:    Not cheap - actually, quite expensive... But as with many other things - you get what you pay for.

Bottom Line:   
I opted to spoil myself and get some carbon bars to try to trim a little weight of the bike (mainly it was just to get something nice for myself). They replaced a pair of Salsa Pro-Moto's that were still in perfect shape. I had the existing grips transferred over as well. The weight reduction for just the bars is significant, but when the entire bike is taken into account is very minor.

On the first part of the ride it almost felt as if I was wearing and extra pair of gloves. I felt slightly disconnected from the trail - it was the minor vibrations not making it to my hands. The bars worked perfectly - when I turned them, they turned the bike - just like the aluminum ones I replaced... BUT - My hands did not get tired or go to sleep as they had on just about every ride previously. On previous rides on the exact same trails I would need to shake the blood back into my fingers at least 2 or 3 times, especially on longer downhill sections with a lot of braking.

Considering the Niner RDO, but some say it is quite harsh on the hands for a carbon bar. However, I see they have recently reduced the we ... Read More »

Niner Flat Top Carbon - sweep orientation?

how do you guys run those bars - I am talking about the sweep, the 5mm offset suggests a "up/down-sweep" which seems awkward - I just got them this weekend and will try different setups on the trail today. But am wondering about the ergonomics thoughts of the niner design team. The bars didn't come ... Read More »
