Strengths:    Yep, it's a handlebar. Reasonably priced and should have good long term durability.

Weaknesses:    Heavy.

Bottom Line:   
These bars are advertised at 280 grams. Mine came it at 360 grams. Too much to blame on normal manufacturing tolerances. Heavier than most DH bars.
Loses chilis because of weight discrepancy.

Strengths:    Very comfortable, wide, looks great.

Weaknesses:    Not strong enough for my set up.

Bottom Line:   
I really liked how comfortable and wide these bars were. But unfortunately I would not recommend them for anyone who rides a rigid single speed. I had mine for 2 months and ended up bending them REALLY bad at the stem. I weigh 200 lbs. and ride very aggressive. I want to get another one of these but I just do not think they would hold up for my weight, set up and riding style. I would recommend these bars for someone who atleast has front suspension.

Strengths:    steel is real! nice sweep and finish

Weaknesses:    none yet

Bottom Line:   
nothing beats a great flat bar. with this you get nitto, surly, and steel for a cheap price. this bar has zero flex and i ride pretty hard and weigh in at over 220lbs. if you ride ss this bar is perfect. nice rise for fine tuning arm position and it is the perfect length for leverage without being too long

Submitted by Dave Browne a Cross Country Rider from Sydney

Date Reviewed: March 27, 2002

Strengths:    Strong and stiff bar

Weaknesses:    Nothing, it isn't weak

Bottom Line:   
The surly bar is the best for single speeding. I haven't been able to bend or flex these yet on the many epic rides I've done with the lads. the bars are wide and need to be and the sweep makes for a comfortable position and ride. If you are planning to build up a S/S or already have one, do yourself a favour and get a bar that has been designed for S/S by S/S riders. If you are an Aussie reading this I know they may be a little more in price than some of the handlebars out there but the difference in the ride is huge, especially when you need to climb the hills.
