Strength:

I have had this product for over three years and they are still working great.

Weakness:

none...

This is one of the best handle bars you can buy for $40-50. It stands up to any thing and last forever. I have no intents of getting a new one for at least another 2 years.

I put this riser bar on to my jumping bike, it has held up well, considering the low price. The bar comes with a top brace that seems to give the bar more strength and support. I am primarily a cross-country rider, but I don't see why you couldn't put this bar on a downhill ride. p.s. remember kids, team you decide rules!! Come to Minnesota and check out some trails that will blow you away, at least for the midwest!!

Absolutely the worst/ weakest riser bar on the market. There is way too much flex when you go off jumps with these things. These so called DH bars suck. If you don't care about weight, they won't break, get the Answer bars. If you do, buy the Azonic bars, but I have bent a pair racing when I went off a jump.

i got these bars from a friend brand new for 8 bucks. he got them like at interbike or something. no problems whatsoever, but then again, i weigh like 140 and tend not to put a lot of stress on anything no matter how hard i ride. heavier people should stay away from these unless they have that little crossbar thingy. but hey, its just a handlebar, and it seems pretty nice, and one time i fell on concrete and it made sparks. so that was neato.

This bar is the answer to most back problems you have ever had. It improves your comfort and can change your riding style for the better. They come in diffrent degrees and height. I have on on my DH bike and one on my XC. The weight penialty is minimal and is worth it. If it starts to creek check the support bars alignment and reef it tight

After being put to the test by Insaine Wayne for a season, he gave them to me. I have put 2 seasons on them and yes they are getting weak, but they have been the most comfortable bars I have rode with. Great steering at eye watering speeds. Does tend to flex a little when pushed.

My bike's frame is small(which I prefer, so shut up), but I
grew tired of looking like a monkey humping a football.
This bar has just enough rise (1.5) and sweepback to make
any bike feel like a motocross bike. MAJOR CONTROL FACTOR.
Worries-- The bolt on crossbar is useless unless it is tightened
down just right or you will create hot spots on the bar as
it flexes, beware. HAa just kidding, go get one.....
Oh yes, bar ends look silly but you can really romp on them
with a wider bar--your choice, but flat bars suck!

I like it!! It's so much more comfortable than a regular bar. So what if it
weighs more.

This bar sucks it cracked on the left side where the crossmember is bolton
it on. I went out and bought a Scott Vertigo DH bar and not only is it
lighter but its been holding up
