    Pimp my XC Comp/handlebars

    I've got the stock Truativ Alu 66 FR on there...riding a lot noticed my one hand hurts, wonder whether an upgrade to Easton Monkeylites is the way to go? Mostly long singletrack in Utah, has a Fox Talas on front, I'm not a bomber downhiller but have slowly upgraded this bike...not ready for all carbon...thanks

    Sounds like more of a fit issue. Switching to the Easton will only help if it's the correct sweep and rise for you. May want to get a fitting at a LBS if you're experiencing pain or discomfort.

    I'm not in big pain, I ride a lot, noticed higher end bikes have upgrades, partially to absorb the bumps...but you're right, a LBS is always the best medicine...and my bike is fitted. Noticed a giant spread of pricing on bars...
