Date Reviewed: October 7, 2009

Strengths:    Light.... could be good for a city bike since they are so narrow

Weaknesses:    Bent them in two after one fall. Too narrow. Too small degree of bend.

Bottom Line:   
Great price...crappy product.

Strengths:    Price, good weight, strong

Weaknesses:    Brand name doesn't have the cool factor...but then again neither do I.

Bottom Line:   
Purchased as part of a combo with a Sette Edge 90mm stem. Very happy overall with both components. The handlebar has good sweep, a slight rise that is easy on my back, and is nice and stiff. Graphics are minimal too, which I prefer. For the price, this combo can't be beat!

Strengths:    Very light, cheap, and great to look at (I bought the white alloy)

Weaknesses:    When I got it in the mail I quickly realized that the bar they sent me had been mounted and sent back. It have a few scratches on it but nothing serious. I called Price Point and they said the next order I make I'll receive free shipping...so I didn't really care.

Bottom Line:   
I love the quality of these bars. I wasn't expecting them to be this nice for such a cheap price. The white looks incredible on my bike. I bought the 25.4 diameter and not only are these comfortable once I dialed them in they seem really rugged. I only weigh 143 and I only ride cross country and singletrack so I'm not pushing them to extreme limits but they work great for me and look even better!

Strengths:    Strong with very little flex, not flashy, great price. Replaced flat bar with this one and noticed increased control on first ride. I doubt there's a better handlebar for $20.00.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
Don't let the price fool you. You won't be disappointed with this handlebar. Use all the extra money you were going to spend and buy a Thomson Masterpiece saddlepost with it.

Date Reviewed: June 1, 2008

Strengths:    This is for the oversized bar. Very stiff. Looks to be high quality. Fairly light. Cheap price.

Weaknesses:    Very stiff. Bend seemed awkward at first but after a small adjustment and about a week of riding they feel familiar like an old couch.

Bottom Line:   
I really didnt want an oversized bar/stem, but Pricepoint was back ordered on the std size. It was a small weight penalty, but the O/S bar is very stiff. It is shot peened and anodized. It looks just as good construction wise as anything else.

Date Reviewed: May 15, 2007

Strengths:    Super inexpensive, will not tear like carbon, relatively light.

Weaknesses:    None, product does what it is designed to do.

Bottom Line:   
I originally was looking at carbon bars but they break and stress factor led me back to aluminum. These bars are 24" wide which matched my stock bars. The lift only .75". I was looking to stay close to original bar specs with a little rise for confort. I would pay 100 buck for a bar that did what I wanted but found it for 20, No argument from me. Don't let the price fool you these will work just fine.

Strengths:    Definitely cheap and very durable and stiff. Not too heavy.

Weaknesses:    None really, get what you pay for.

Bottom Line:   
For the price, it's excellent. Bought the combo, as did the previous reviewer. No longer use as primary bike, but used the handlebar for 1 year and still use when conditions are muddy and wet with the good ole hardtail.

Strengths:    cheap, ummmm cheap, strong, lightweight, did I meantion CHEAP!

Weaknesses:    not flashy, but gets the job done

Bottom Line:   
What a deal, this thing is great if you want a low rise for cross country, and isn't the lightest in the world, but no porker at 220g
buy it with stem combo and it is only $37!!
