Strengths:    Price, strength & fatigue resistance, light weight

Weaknesses:    none for me

Bottom Line:   
First off, I bought this bar for about $20 at Supergo. I don't know whether it was a inventory mistake at Qranc or what, but I applaud Qranc for allowing outlets to sell their products for below-MSRP. My review applies to all "forged" (they say it is, but how do you forge a tube?) 2000-series aluminum bars. This was the third bar on my M2. My AT-4 was sooper light, but too narrow. My EA70 bar was sooper light, but sooper thin and fragile... I'm 190 pounds and like to jump. I bought the Qranc because the 2014 aluminum forms a little thicker, with a small (less than the paint on your chainstays) weight penalty over most 7000-series bars. I've been perfectly happy with it. It is strong, wide, and has not failed from jumping (landing) or from crumpled ends at the bar end mounts. Full 5/5 for Qranc (still alive out there?), 2000-series forged bars, and MTB mfr's who allow their products to be sold by outlets for less-than-MSRP. Vive la Qranc!

Strengths:    Light and really stiff

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
I'm 6'1" 200lbs and ride in rock Arizona. This bar doesn't creak, squeek, or flex. Feels really solid. It works great, but might be a little short for some riders who are wide in the chest.

Strengths:    
Light, good looking


Weaknesses:    
Damn thing broke


Bottom Line:   
Watch out. This bar which I've had less than 18 months snapped while I was merely leaning on my bike during a break in a trail ride. Snapped right off just left of the stemp clamp. No warning, no creak or crack, just snapped off and left a jagged edge. This bar sucks. I

Weaknesses:    
none


Bottom Line:   
Great handlebar at any price. Good strength to weight ratio (lighter than Kore Lite). It's marked to that you can easily line it up with the stem. The beadblasting helps keep the grip on straight.

Strengths:    
Very strong and tough through out.


Bottom Line:   
This handle is replacement for my Zoom 150 which bent on the bar end side after crash.
This bar has thick wall and no problem for clamping bar end. Though I am tempting to buy TI handle bar, so far it has served me well. I give me five stars. However I am still wondering what people talking about the resillence feel of on the TI handle bar. Even though I have TI frame.

Strengths:    
Light Weight,good looks,
low cost.


Weaknesses:    
none found yet


Bottom Line:   
Pretty good stuff, to be honest. Because it's so damn light, I expected it to have bent already, but it's held up well thus far. Four and a half chilis, because there's always something better. Hey! What's this Star shit for a rating? I'm pushing four stars, but I'd better see four and a half chilis!
