This question was partly posted up on another forum but I thought I'd try here, as there is probably more traffic. It's for my 29er if that helps! My question is if anyone has tried one...and how it compares to a standard alu or carbon bar of the same configuration. My impressions on the few reviews I have seen on 31.8 Ti flat bars at 700+ wide (the other bar I know of is the Thompson) is that they are only a little better at taking the sting out of the trail than the aluminium versions. I am interested in how they compare to the 25.4 versions mostly. On the whole the impression I get is that they are still stiff, rather than forgiving. Wondering if I would be better off with a 25.4 on a rigid bike....carbon an option but all else the same would prefer Ti.
