Strength:

Stiff, Light, a very good value

Weakness:

It says nashbar on it

This bar is well worth what I paid. It is perfect for single speed use with a rigid fork. It has never felt flimsy and it soaks up a lot of vibration.
I highly recommend this bar if you are not looking to spend a mint on a bar but you would like the comfort benefits of a carbon bar. It's not as light as some of the really top end bars, but it is MUCH lighter than a cheap aluminum riser.

Strength:

Light, cheap, carbon and good vibration characteristics. Stealth graphics. 25.4 diameter, I didn't have to change the stem.

Weakness:

No prestige. Much wider than the narrow straight handlebar it replaced. Took some getting used to. Sometimes have a cramp in my tricep muscle due the change in upper arm position. This is more of a problem when I ride the MTB park. 25.4 diameter not available in OS. The bike really needs a new stem and I have an OS stem sitting in the parts box.

Replaced an Answer 141 aluminum straight bar.Definitely, the ride smoothed and is not so jarring. Someday, I may cut an inch or so, to narrow the bar and improve ergonomics. This bar was a bargain and does everything it should. Buy it on sale. Great replacement for an aluminm bar.
