    Handlebars

    So my bike is like two months old and it is a 2010 Scott Aspect 55. Entry level bike but LOVE the frame. I am upgrading it as i go to be a better bike. Right now I am looking at handlebars for my serious trail riding.
    I was looking at the Easton Monkey Bars or Easton Havoc. Just confused wondering what you have and your feed back. Looking for serious downhill bars under $100 that can take a beating. Not sure about the rise, sweep, etc. Please help!!!

    Have your current bars done something to make you nervous about their durability?

    If they're truly not up to the task, you'll most likely get some warning signs before you actually push them to failure.

    what are you looking for over the stock bars, more rise, more width, more sweep?
