Bolt up the Ritchey Pro Flat Handlebar and hit the trails with ultra-accurate steering and minimum weight to hold you back. Double-butted construction ditches excess material so you can ascend climbs quicker, while a bead-blasted finish reduces stress risers for long term durability. Available in three widths, the Ritchey Pro compliments everything from leverage-needy single speeds to quick-handling, tree-dicing XC rides.
Strengths: Great as a stock componet for my GT carbon 09 Zaskar
Weaknesses: Finally after a few years of heavy riding the bar has corroded and broke on the left side. I guess that the salt can still get to the aluminum.
The bar work for what I needed it for years and it showed signs of degredation the past few time I changed out the grips which is about twice a year for me. The end bar got a little too plush and knew it was time to change it out.
Like I said great stock componet, but now I have upgraded to an Easton carbon EC90 590mm bar
