    So that's what happened to the Salsa Bend bar!
    This is a Pugs not some carbon wannabee pretzel wagon!!

    I like these better. Little more sweep and I think wider.

    True, and I agree.

    It's just funny with Q how house branded products disappear without fanfare, only to pop up, slightly modified, under another house brands tent. As if you can't possibly tweak the sweep on a bar, and call it the Bend 3? No, gotta spin it off to Surly if it gets *that weird*....

    Aye, thought for a split second that it was a link to new (monsta) tires.
    Nice bars, though.

    Actually Salsa renamed the Bend to Bend Deluxe and it's still available. Less sweep, but a wider option than the Surly.

    Ritchey may be about to release a much wider option than these 2 (800mm) with similar bend.

    I did yes. Looks intriguing for my commuter. I wonder if it was named after the Terminal Bar in NE Minneapolis. Admittedly, it's a better name the pub crawl bar.

    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    Apparently I stopped paying attention when the Bend 2 disappeared without a trace.

    I do Jones bars 98% of the time anyway.....

    Those Ritcheys are sweet too. In case you haven't noticed, I'm a big fan of swept bars.
