Strengths:    Light weight, stiff enough not to flex excessively yet still compliant eough to be comfortable

Weaknesses:    Thin wall thickness so easily crushed by bar ends

Bottom Line:   
Originally bought them as a replacement for my heavy old steel bars and don't regret it in any way..
Hed them since 1998-99 and they're still going strong.. I've given them the highest chilli ratings as although they were expensive in their day I'm still using them to this day, can't really get much better value than that..

Strengths:    Keeps your chin off your stem...
Oh! and it gives you something to hold onto...

Weaknesses:    I squashed the ends with bar ends

Bottom Line:   
I havent had any problems with this bar, its lasted 4000 miles of off road and commuting.
Its been for me one of those fit and forget parts...
But i want to try a riser bar soon...
Ive been riding flat bars for 4 years now, I'll think ill convert to the dark side (just to see)
