Strength:

burnt orange color
slambar
good rise, long for stability

Weakness:

Slambar slips at times

Very good for the money. Picked it up for half price ($35 Canadian). Doesn't bend. I am very happy with this bar and reccomend it for riders wanting to make 'da jump from straight to a riser bar.

i have had this bar for almost the entire season on my gary fisher bigsur. i love it, it's fairly light (not that i care at all), stiff, and wide enough for me. i don't use the reinforcer anymore it creaked a little bit so i took it off, it got annoying. this bar rips i would highly reccommend this bar to either downhillers or xc racers.

i went shopping for riser bars cause i heard they can take pressure off you wrists. these where reasonably priced and not to heavy. i put them on and i totally fell in love with them. they work so well when trail riding fast or going down small downhills in texas. they dont work to well when going slow but who goes slow with these bars on?

I bought these bars because I was interested in trying out a set of riser bars and the price was right. These bars were considerably cheaper than the other riser bars in my lbs and they work great. I use them for both trials and technical descents and they are great. They did squeak a little but thanx to the grease idea, no probs anymore......

I bought these for cross country riding for a more upright riding position and these do the job perfectly. Despite their 450g weight with the reinforcer bar they are still excellent. Super stiff and extra wide. Concerning the complaints about the creaking of the reinforcer, I nipped it in the bud by greasing everything when I installed them. Take it off, grease the bar where the clamps will go, grease the reinforcer where it inserts into the clamps and you have an excellent, creak-free, super-stiff riser bar.

My prevous review is all wrong. It turns out once I took off the reinforcer the creaking sound went away. Yes it still scraped the paint away but it sounds 100% better. For $55 it is a good deal. Hey Missy Giove and Myles Rockwell think so!!!!!!!!

I am a mail carrier by bicycle and I have not found any thing better that this bar. It creaks a little but with the reinforcer the I am not worried.
