I demand pictures...Pleasechuckc1971 said:Got to ride the Mary bar for the first time today on a local and well known trail. The trail is rooty, rocky place that has steep, but short hills....
I don't run that sort of position on my road bike, let alone my mountainbike.lanpope said:I think one very important position that the Marys are missing (at least vs. the curved end Jones) is the "rest your wrists on the cross bar and grab the forward curved portion" of the Jones in a tucked aero style.
Any bike shop with a QBP account can get them...bikecop said:OK, already, where can I find these amazing dimension cork grips. google search yields nuttin'.
Does anyone know when the Titec H bars will come out ?chuckc1971 said:Sorry no pics. Sorry to be a tease. I'm borrowing a camera and haven't learned how to download the pics yet.
-feels much like the angle of my Jones bar
-I went to a slightly shorter stem which I also lowered (yes, it was for fashion)
-the effect is my cockpit length stayed the same.
-all my controls (ODI grips, grip shift front, X-9 trigger on right and Reba pop-loc) fit
-The biggest disappointment for me is the width of the bars. They are narrower than my Jones bar or my 26" Monkeylite. Like many of us, I have a wingspan like an albatross and am wide shouldered. So, I'm a bit more upright now even though the grip to seat length stayed pretty similar. I have a setback seatpost already with the seat slid back about as far as I can.
I will give it a try on my local trails and see how it feels. Going from riding a Jones bar for some time back to riser really demonstrated to me how comfy the Jones bar was.
