    Mine have not arrived (KY). My bike looks pretty sad, sitting in my office without 'bars.

    They are all on their way, I promise. Wrapping 60 perculiar shaped parcels was somewhat taxing for "our ray" in the warehouse and he may have had a days break from the cardboard origami he was having to do. Or did he use 2 jiffy bags? I told him I was too busy answering the phone to come in and help on those day :-)

    UK people got them yesterday, or the day before, so I'd hope some of you would see them today.

    Brant,

    What's the weight on the Mary bar? I plan on ordering a Midge bar from my CX bike from you shortly and while I was checking out your site noticed Mary and she looked mighty tempting for the mtbs.

    Thanks

    Mike

    I'm still waiting for mine too. I am glad you posted because I really was not sure how long it would take them to get here. I really didn't want to bug Brant with e-mails for no good reason. Cant wait to try them, however.

    you can do whatever you fancy. Mine are sloped down a bit. But different strokes for different folks... one good thing about mary is the way that the stem clamp is aligned more with your grip position, so you don't get the bars trying to rotate themselves down and around over bumps.

    Hey Brant,

    How did they go out? Royal Post or Brown Santa (UPS)? I'm just getting twitchy. Waiting was NEVER my strong suit.

    Argh! The waiting is killing me.

    Anyone in North America gotten Mary bars as of 3:15pm April 20, 2005?

    I have reports of a Mary landing in NY, yesterday.

    Regretably, the customer actually ordered a Midge bar, but hey, he's happy as he wanted a Mary as well.

    So it won't be long for the rest of you.

    I *think* mine has come in. I have a parcel waiting for me at the local post office and unless I'm being served legally for something I'm oblivious to with enuf paperwork to fill a parcel, it's my Mary. Right on schedule as I was expecting it by tomorrow. My location is Ontario, Canada.

    As a bonus, there is nothing filled out in the amount due box, so I'm assuming no duties on it. First ride report this Sunday!

    My wife just called to tell me I got a long box today with a British return address. I'm in Oregon, so Mary has officially made it to the west coast. Thanks Brant!

    Mine arrived today. I'll be the first in the US to post pics of my new Mary bars. Unfortunately, I won't be able to put them on a bike for a few days.

    Yes - but he's running a 29er and needs "drop" not "rise".

    Maybe we'll get some made up with the logos the other way round :-)

    Indigosky,

    Have you received your bars yet?

    Mine arrived yesterday (Northernish New England). If you have not received them yet, you may very soon.
