Has anyone tried this bar? Aluminum or Carbon. How are you riding impressions with that kind of bend?

I've got the Moto Ace 17 degree bend bar. It's a comfy bar. If you are considering the bar, just make sure to factor in the amount of bend may require you to use a longer stem to dial in your fit. Riding impressions? It's a fun bar which you immediately adapt to once the reach is dialed in correctly. I raced XC on it for the 2009 season and enjoyed it.

Thanks for the replies guys.
I was actually thinking about getting a 90mm stem a while ago to replace my 100mm one. I will just try the bar with the 100mm and see how I need to adjust from there.

More sweep is even more comfortable. :) Lots of 25-45 degree baclsweep bars available now due to demand. Bruce nailed an important ingredient. Be sure your range of stem length increase required can accomodate the associated backsweep to keep your reach the same which is as important to comfort and performance as handle end angle.
