    If you can live with the high rise version, Pricepoint has them at $59 with the advantage of free shipping rather than the punitive $9.25 that Bluesky charges to ship these bars.

    But in either case, you'll need to live with 685mm length, which is pretty short by today's standards. Unfortunately, adding another 35mm of length will cost you an extra $40+

    I'd settle for an extra $40. Any deals you know of on longer carbon bars? I'm considering the enve riser or Easton haven carbon but I'm not stuck on those, they just seem to be the more popular options. I'm only 5'8" and happy with my 710mm now, but it's aluminum, so I don't need anything too long. Or at least I don't think I need it.... Yet.

    Damn, just paid 30 for an alloy bar on ebay, would have paid the extra for one of these.
    Rolling on 29", 650b, 8.3" and 23mm

    Yep, I can't live with 685mm any more. I'm running 740mm alloy bars on my "burly" bike, and I just put 720mm bars on my marathon bike. I was able to get the new 2014 EC70 from Universal Cycles for $100, but YMMV. I did a price match on Universal's 720mm 2014 EC70 to the Pricepoint $59 older 685mm version, and although the price match initially went through, they later contacted me to say they couldn't do the match since they were different products, but they offered me $100 for their 720mm version, which I thought was fair, so that's what I bought.

    I have these on one of my bikes and like them. Not as wide as some of the newer stuff, but work well for me.

    Mine just showed up today, looks nice and pretty light to boot. Def not the widest out there, but I'm currently on 660mm so this should be nice.

    Did I wait too long on this? Looks like shipping is no longer free, they ding you for $10!

    EDIT: Nevermind, got the code "THEBIGSALE" to work for free shipping still!!!

    I'm glad you were able to resurrect the free shipping with the code. I remembered an email from last month which explicitly stated that free shipping was a new, consistent policy (graphic below) so it would have been irritating for Pricepoint to bail on that commitment so soon.

    I have the skinny on that. I placed an order this morning and got charged over $15 to ship some seatposts. I remember the email saying free shipping is permanent, and when I got home the banner saying "free shipping" was actually still on my computer. So...I called up pricepoint and asked what the deal was. The customer service girl was very nice and credited me the shipping, but she said that the free shipping "promo" ended. I said that I remembered the email saying it was permanent and she said that "they" (meaning management) changed their minds. I said that it looked bad and that it was being talked about in the forums already. She had kind of an "of crap" tone at that point and said she'd pass that on to management. She was very nice and kind of indicated that the customer service reps get caught in between that kind of stuff. So there it is, permanent means a couple weeks.

    It is a pretty sad reflection on Pricepoint to make such an overt, aggressive statement ("not for a limited time, for good!"), sending a mass email to emphasize this very point, and then bail on it a month later.

    I think pricepoint is wallowing. They're not the go-to shop anymore and starting to do things very wrong.

    It's insane that Pricepoint would rescind the shipping policy after such a brief period of time.
