    Renthal Fatbar & Duo stem,any good,any reviews???

    I was thinking of buying the Renthal Fatbar at 38mm rise,780mm width,(might cut down a bit?) and the Renthal Duo stem for my AM Nomad...I love the Alumigold color,kinda matches the fork stanchions.I seen this setup in a tutorial video being used by Fabien Barel...I know Renthal has been in the MX game forever and ive had good luck there,wondering about the MTB product?

    I've got those bars on my 2011 Enduro. I've used Renthal for years on past ATVs & Motorcycles. With my Easton 50mm stem that has a 30 degree rise, it feels like my '92 Honda CR500 MX bike used too!

    I am 6' 6" tall. I hate feeling like I am sitting "on top" of something. For me, Renthal has always made the best feeling bars.

    I have the Duo stem and love it.
    It is a bit of a pita, as it has a unique clamp system that makes bar swaps a bit more problematic. If you run one bar and set and forget, then no issues.

    I was running a Point-One 50 mm stem, but prefer the Duo as it has a bit of rise that compensates for the lower rise of the Easton Havoc carbon bars I'm using with it. Fit, finish and weight are top of the line as well.

    Nice setup!! I just got the Enduro Comp 2011 and hating the stock bars. Way too cramped and hating the back sweep. Thinking of the same bars!

    Seeing how Renthal has been at the top of the MX industry for twenty years I would have no hesitation in buying their MTB products. Nice liking setup BTW.

    I've got a Renthal ring on my SS. It's beautifully made.

    Now running the Renthal bar with a Thomson stem! The Renthal duo was nice but I did not care for the look of the front clamp design and like the Thomson stem a bit better![IMG]fl 001.jpg[/IMG]
