Anyone have this on your rig yet? I was at the shop today and saw a few on some bikes and I ended up ordering one. They get me every time I'm in there, haha. Just curious if anyone had one and how they liked it. Thanks.

i assume you talking about the Eastern haven carbon? i have one of those on my BD mission.its a low riser and the bend is spot on , 28" wide and feels stiff and stable too me im north eastern us so the winter has hindered much riding. well that and my work schedule. but i have ridin a bit in the slop and it makes my bike feel globs of stable slidin all over the place.no big drops or anything but im likin it so far.

Thats good to hear. I'm looking forward to putting it on. I have a different carbon bar on there now, that isn't as wide and actually has a good little raise on it. I tried a wide bar on my big bike and I felt like a sail boat. It just felt a little out there for me, it was a 30in width. I know going wide is the new thing, but hopefully this bar will fit in between the two. My shop has a blade designed to cut carbon so if its to crazy I can just cut some off. Thanks for the replies!!

30 inch width sounds like the carbon Havoc models. I just put some on a bike and have yet to ride them, but the rise and bend feels great. I do NOT plan on trimming them...

If you get to put some miles on it, let me know what you thought. It will take a few days to get the order in and processed. Hopefully you can write some of your thoughts and opinions on it. Thanks.
