    Superfly 100 Handle Bars.......

    I just got a SF100 last week and I was thinking about getting a new set of Bars but I'm concerned that the new ones will be to twitchy. The new xxx Carbon bars a 580MM wide and the stock ones are 640MM with a 12 Degree sweep. I know these bars were designed to work well with the 29 inch wheels so I was wondering why Bontrager doesn't make a XXX bar with a 12 degree sweep at 580MM? Will the new bars be to twitchy?

    Thanks,

    Jason.

    Strange i was thinking the same thing i have just paid a deposit on a SF100 and asked the lbs if it would be possible to fit a bonty xxx carbon bar, they said no problem but tbh i got a funny feeling that when i go to collect on Tuesday they will be standard xxx bars without the sf OE bars sweep ! So not sure if that is the case whether to take em and try it or stick with the oe bars ???

    I've been ridding these bars on my RIG SS for around a year now and I really like the way they feel with the 29" wheels. I think I might just save some money can cut them down a bit. If I were you I would try that first and see what you think. Cheaper then buying new bars right away.

    I didn't like the stock handlebar when I first got my SF100 but after a couple of rides it's grown on me. That said I sometimes wish it had a 9 or 6-degree sweep versus 12.

    I would not recommend a bar narrower than 600mm for a 29er.

    I was going to cut mine down to 600MM and see if I like it. Thanks for the recommendation on the 600mm.

    Well spotted that man I've just ordered a set of them and canceled the xxx i had on order seeing as it was going to be a couple of months before Bontrager had any xxx in the UK
    And a lot cheaper as a bonus

    Or thoughts on these with a 10deg sweep ? http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/M...?ModelID=39245

    Not exactly colour matched but.... Thing is I've kinda got used to the 12deg sweep and although it felt odd at first it kinda works nice now !!!
