    Cowbell 2 vs 3 bars?

    No shape/reach/drop difference, just material and weight, right?

    I believe you are correct. Salsa's site shows the same specs for CB2/3. CB2 is lighter.

    Yep. Have both and cannot tell one for the other. The weight difference is usually negligible considering the bikes you usually find them on.

    On some seller's sites, the Cowbell bars have an 'MD' acronym in the name. I assume it doesn't mean 'medical doctor'. What is this?

    "What the more affordable Cowbell 3 lacks is the lighter 7000-series alloy used in the more expensive model. Instead, the Cowbell 3 is constructed of 6061-T6 aluminum, which carries a weight penalty of approximately 20 grams."
