Strength:

Nice finish, good angles

Weakness:

Bit too much flex (I'm a heavyweight)

Nice bar, but it just didn't feel right on my MTB. I ended up shortening it and putting it on my commuter roadbike. Love it for that use.

Strength:

The whole bar, they are very strong and STEEL...Mine came with a cross brace which just adds more strength.

Weakness:

Nothing yet

The best bar I've ever used. Absolutely no flaws. The length is perfect in my opinion, and they don't get much stronger. Recomended for any time of riding, especially freeriding and urban.

Go buy them and enjoy!

Strength:

Light and dampens vibrations very well

Weakness:

could be a little wider

I have actually never seen a Ti Crowbar, but I got one somehow. I've never heard of anyone else having one or seen it advertised. It really matches my Ti frame very well and dampens those chatter bumps way, way better than the Monkeybar or the Hyperlite. I give it a double 5 chilis because it does what it is supposed to do. If you can find one, get it.

Strength:

A Good Handlebar. Definately stiffer than my old strait bar.Very nice Rise and Sweep(I got the 40mm(1.5") 5 degree).

Weakness:

It was A little hard to slide into my old stem. I was afraid I was going to snap my stem in two. But after about an hour of wrestling it I got it on.

I really Like this Bar. The riser bar sits me up in a much more comfortable position. I am tall -6'2 and I used to feel like I was leaning too far over my front hub. With my old strait bar I had to much weight on my hands. After a long ride my wrists and shoulders would hurt a little. My Crow Bar is great- A bit wider so it opens up my shoulders and I feel like my center of gravity is now where it should be. This Bar really improved my bikes geometry. I took off my old bar ends- I thought I'd miss them , but I feel I can climb a lot better with my riser bar. It is much stiffer than my old bar. I have been able to do some down hill runs that were just too much before - no more endos!
I give this bar Five Fat Flamin' Huffys. Great Bar At a Cheap Price Go buy one you'll ride better!

i`ve owned a lot of riser bars(club roost,azonic double wall,profile),but the crow bar is by far the stiffest. i`m a 250 pounder, so stiff is good for me. thanks keith,good job!

Strength:

perfect width, super stiff, super strong, lighter than all those dumb downhill risers out there, cheap when compared to Easton, Race Face, etc.

Weakness:

absolutely none!

The Bonti Crowbar is perfect for my size (5'8 with a 17.5 bike frame). I have way more control on steep, technical descents, drops, & wheelies. It is much more comfortable on the long rides, and feels perfect! Although my flat bar was much lighter, I do not notice any difference in weight on the front end. BUY THIS RISER!!!

I never realized how much a riser bar helps! My back feels so much better sice I switched to a riser bar. I got the Crow because it has the largest degree of bend among all bars. I get great control and it keeps me in more of an upright position. I dont know about durability yet since I just got it, but my back gives it 5 chilis.
