I also used those on a rigid ss and they get the thumbs up from me
It says in the description that the grip areas are oversized making it difficult for many levers and grips.Just noticed Bikeman has Carver Prybar "2nds" on sale for $80...I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that they are cosmetic blems like the irrelevant graphics are screwed up or something to that nature.
Whoah. I didn't know about these. Will be on my radar. Thanks.May want to check out a custom Seven @ $150. Any length and bend.

I got a pair of the steel Luv Handles years ago, and I sold them after 1 ride. Way too stiff for my liking. The Parkarinos had noticeable flex, which is why I liked them on a rigid bike. I think they are wider than the Luvs too. They were perfect for out of the saddle climbing.Those Parkarino bars by Watson are tempting me!
I'm torn between those and the Groovy Ti Luv Handle offerings. I'll be returning to a rigid setup once I move out of the rocky part of AZ next month. I've been pretty happy with the steel Luv Handles so unless I get impatient saving or hear incredible Parkarino reviews I'll be ordering from Rody once more.
Thanks to all who contributed above and kept my cravings alive.
Andrew Watson custom-made my 720mm Titanium Parkarino bars, with 21-degree sweep. I love the fit, compliance and natural feel these thicker tubing ti bars have:Since my last post, ages ago, I've moved all my mtb's to Watson Parkarino bars. Custom Cycles in CT - Handlebars As all of my bikes are fully rigid, the Ti flex is my suspension. The bend is perfect for my wrists (a Jones bar killed my wrists and hands after only 3 days of bikepacking).
