    Do you like mary bars?

    I was out riding my single speed around the neighborhood and I feel like I need to be a little more upright. I thought about raising my current bars by playing around with the rings but I'm on my last ring. That's where the mary bars entered my mind. Anyone have them and like them or didn't like them?

    Mine were steel and very unforgiving. They offered a different hand position but Salsa Pro Moto Carbon bars with 17 sweep were fare better of rme.

    Think risers or a more upright stem.
    I don't rattle.

    I have a pair on my custom ti 29er plus - recently rode an overnight, offroad 100 miler and didn't get any discomfort. Not a bar for hammering, but if you want something to ride all day, it keeps the wrists and shoulders in a nice,relaxed position IME.
