Titec? Al or Ti? What are your experiences? Is the Al durable for a clyde? I'm seriously thinking about picking one up, but the Ti price is out of my range. I'm most interested in the Loop H-bar (in Al).

I have a fully outfitted Ti Jones bar that I no longer use. The shape of the Jones was reducing the reach on my bike so I went back to conventional bars. I did like the many hand positions.

I'd part with it if it went to a good home :)

I ended up picking up an aluminum Loop H-bar, and have ordered some IRD shifter perches for my barcon shifters and cork grips and tape. Still need to get a mount for my headlight. I'm looking forward to this!

I have the Titec H-bars on my fatbike and I love them, for some reason I have more confidence with them and my elbows don't hurt as much after a ride for some reason.

That's exactly what I'm looking for. I (badly) dislocated my left elbow two years ago, and I still can't keep weight on it for longer periods of time. I'll mount it in more of an upright position and have multiple hand positions. I'm hoping this will help alot. I'm looking forward to longer rides once again ...

I've got a Titec H-Bar on my commuter Karate Monkey, and I like it. Took a while to get used to it, but now it feels very natural.

I haven't taken it offroad yet, though.... it could be that I won't like it once I try a few bumpy descents. That's what happened when I tried Mary bars a few years ago.

Loop H-bar is on. Just gotta finish it up (brake levers, shifters, grips & tape). Looking forward to it! :)
