    salsa pro moto?

    any one ride the 11 degree pro moto on their ss? How do you like it? I'm debating between this and a titec c3 carbon o/s riser, for comparison. I've always ridden titec risers, but with an 11 degree bend and 660mm length the pro moto makes a flat bar appealing. I ride xc and this bar would be going on a steel 29er, for reference. Thanks.

    i rode those bars for about six months, then last week i bought some pro moto carbon bars with less sweep. i think i like the new ones better, especially when climbing.

    I am used to riding like 5 degree flats, ordered the 11's on accidenet. Liked em so much I put em on all of my XC bikes. hands down my fav bar, going back to flats, they feel stupid, no control.

    Hooray for Salsa!

    I'm running them on my Voodoo Dambala 29er. They rock - very comfortable. On a 29er I didn't want riser bars but almost every flat bar out there has too little sweep in my opinion. The only flat bars with decent sweep I could find were the Pro Moto and the Surly Torsion Bar (15 degrees of sweep!) . The Surly bars are also very nice, but a little heavy. These two bars are a nice ergonomic compromise between regular setups and H-bars or Mary.

    So what your saying is, go for it.

    Good. Those c3's are crazy expensive and only about 40g lighter. Plus then you need the O/S stem which is more expensive. Good deal.

    you might end up needing a longer stem to compensate for the shortened reach on the salsa bars
