    Strength:

    It is strong and cheap.

    Weakness:

    uh.

    The bar has lived a tuff life and come through it like a champ. I use this bar on both of my bikes and love for long rides or the famous 10sec. down hill.

    Strength:

    very durable, good rise and sweep for xc, and plenty of stiffness for a little rider on the descents. Variety of color for the stylish. Company resides in the bay area.

    Weakness:

    none to my knowledge-maybe a lighter version would be ideal

    this a great all around riser and apparently they do make a lighter version.Check it out at titec.com. the hellbent dh is the same specs with 7075 al aat 295grams. hey so its not much from 350 but still lighter. Two of my other friends ride them and we are all different wieghts( beween 150 and 200 lbs.) and we haven't had any issues. Keep up the good work titec. I'll be putting in a review on the dh soon - i'm biulding a sc bullit this week and hope to get out his weekend.

    Strength:

    nothin

    Weakness:

    everythin, it started creekin and crakin after like 3 weeks, i thought it was good when i got it but it didnt last, first i thought maybe the stem bolts were loose (titec aswell)bu they wernt it was the handelbar

    its an alrite bar i guess, its not really that strong but its ok i guess, mine started creeking after 3 weeks, i thought it was the stem , i figured maybe it was loose, well they wernt, so i figered i should take the bar off and sure enoguh there was a big long crack in it. well i probably wont buy another roox bar, i got a roox dh bar on now, its really thick. i trust it alot more now.
    and they do want a fair chunk of cash for this thing considering how long it lasts.
    o well $h!t happens

    Strength:

    Strenth, width, price

    Weakness:

    none yet

    Took a digger going downhill haulin' booty. My bike flew about 15 feet and came down hard on the bars. No damage. I went ass over the bars a couple of times and it took every hit. I have beat these bars as hard as you can possibly beat them. I also weigh 200 pds so these things can take a beating. They are also very wide which is nice for the XC riding that I do. I also like the slight rise. A total of 10 flaming dog turds for this thing.

    Strength:

    not very expensive!

    Weakness:

    not very stiff...

    this bar and stem combo came on the bike i bought last yr. i guess it is an OK component for a bike like this...mine started cracking very early in its life...and i could feel alot of flex out of the front of my bike, and i wondered if it was my fork...then when i put my race face riser on it all the flex was gone.. so i kept the raceface on...the titec just wasnt stiff enough...but i guess its an ok bar for the price.

    Strength:

    strong & stiff

    Weakness:

    weight

    This bar is pretty damn strong. I bought it to shave some weight of my bike and my Azonic Chubby's were 450g. I thought I would've saved more than 100g, but realized the hell bents were 350g. The width is nice too as I have pretty broad shoulders. I'd recommend this bar if your not weight conscious and you don't have the dough to drop on the Chubby's.
