Strengths:    Very stiff no flex nice look

Weaknesses:    none yet

Bottom Line:   
With this bar it is a much more comfortable riding position than my stock bar which had very little rise and sweep. I now have a Truvativ crank and BB, short reach stem and now the bar. So far very happy with Truvativ.

Strengths:    Built like a tank, finds lines like a dream, and looks great. Rise fits my body perfect (6'7' 270). The angle on these is great as well. Cockpit finally feels like one.

Weaknesses:    You might break someone's bike if you run into them. Can't easily be taken off to use as a weapon :)

Bottom Line:   
Very well made product for anyone who is big, beats up their bike, or whats to have an extremely solid feel up front. Extremely great bargain at $26. Great stuff.

Hussefelt bar is just worth buying. Makes you feel strong while riding. Im using it with the hussefelt stem, so the pair has been doing really awesome. I bet they will never let you down anywhere, anytime.

Strengths:    Absolutely bomb proof, or as Dano says "Bradley proof".

Weaknesses:    Bit of a b*tch to get on my aftermarket ODI grips. Whatever, thirty seconds longer than I wanted to spend working on that project if you wanna call that a weakness.

Bottom Line:   
Great bar with no complaints though I've heard some pretty nasty comments about Truvativ's bottom brackets and cranks.

Strengths:    Perfect geometry, great feel, no flex. Look awesome.

Weaknesses:    None really, one of the the few things Truvativ, and to a lesser extent SRAM got right.

Bottom Line:   
An awesome bar for freeriders, downhillers and all mountain riders.

Feel great in the hands, look the business, great value.

No regrets on these!

Strengths:    very strong,pretty cool looking

Weaknesses:    none so far

Bottom Line:   
pretty sweet bars for the price, i virtually dont see how you bend these freaking things. I didnt think that i would like these bars cause of the up sweep (coming from crowbar comps 9 degree down sweep) but I did and U might too.

Submitted by Calen a Weekend Warrior from SF Bay Area

Date Reviewed: December 30, 2004

Strengths:    stiff and strong. I can't see how these bars could possibly be bent or snapped (without you also being bent and snapped at the same time). Look OK too - laser etching is qual. Nice price.

Weaknesses:    pretty heavy. The Holzcrappers are 40g lighter, which proves that you don't need that extra weight to have a burly bar.

Bottom Line:   
Solid and inexpensive. If you wanted to, you could ride these bars for 20 years. I don't weigh very much so am switching to a lighter azonic bar, but if you do 30 footers or are physically massive, then these babys will be sweet.

Strengths:    super strong, super strong, super strong, and cheap!

Weaknesses:    a tad heavy

Bottom Line:   
Get the bars! Do it, do it. These are the stiffest strongest bars I have ever ridden. I went all Truvativ with my bike build ths year and am loving it. I can only imagine how sweet the Holzfeller bars are. My hussefelt bar kick my diabolus bars in the junk. Truvativ makes far better products in my opinion. My bike I built last year was all shimano and race face. This year it is all Truvativ. You will not be upset with these bars. Go to most any online shop and get em!
