Strengths:    These are great very lightweight bars and they look fantastic!
I really notice how the carbon dampens the vibration to my hands.

Weaknesses:    More a material issue. The bars flex more when going uphill and you pull against them. Just takes getting used to.

Bottom Line:   
Great bars! Really smoothed out vibration on fast downhills.
They also look great. Not as stiff as aluminum but I guess that's the point.

Strengths:    Beautiful finish. One of the best looking carbon bars made.

Weaknesses:    This thing is weak. Really weak. Salsa won't warranty it if it breaks. Expensive.

Bottom Line:   
I had this bar for about a month. I loved the look and feel. Perfect length and rise. But, the very first time I went OTB the thing snapped in half. I have had hundreds of worse falls on the Easton Monkey Lite carbon bars on my other 2 bikes with no problems at all. The Monkey Lite carbon bar on my other bike is 4+ years old and going strong. Salsa wouldn't offer any warranty or even crash replacement. Unless you ride only light XC, avoid this bar and get an Easton.

Strengths:    Light n' Strong Wide for SS use has a textured clamp section

Weaknesses:    none yet (I should really replace it after a year of use...or should I?)

Bottom Line:   
I love the flat area of the bar it allows vertical dampening on full ridged and is still strong enough for some torque.

Torque specs for Pro Moto Carbon Riser bar

Anybody know the torque specs for stems for the Pro Moto Carbon Riser bar? Should I just follow the Thomson torque specs since that is the stem I'm running? I keep my brake levers loose enought to spin in a crash, so I'm not worried about over-torquing those... Thanks.Read More »
