    Bars with a huge sweep

    Stop by a local shop today and was recommend the luv bar by Groovy Cycle. I've been on bikes with a big sweep which felt slow and cramped.

    I'm currently running a crank bro carbon 11 with 6 degree sweep flat bar on a SS superfly...
    I like being low and spread out. I know its all personal preference but I was just wondering what the speedfreaks at SS MTBR rock out on.

    I'm using the a Bontrager race lite flat bar with 12* big sweep, it's comfy without being crazily bent, wide enough that it feels wide and very light to boot.

    Salsa bars also come in 11deg if 17 is too much. Misfit FU bars are another alternative.

    I've owned Mary bars (40d), Titec H-bars (40d), custom Black Sheep titanium bars (40d), Ragley Carnegie's carbon bar (~25d), and currently have a Origin8 Space Off Road II bar (40d) on the way. All "alt" bars. Love 'em! (although apparently not enough to settle down with just one of them). The Origen8 Space Off Road II is 31.8mm (more stem choices), 40d (I prefer more), cheap, and lighter than Titec H-bar or J-bar. All these bars feel wider than their actual width, and excel at standing climbs.
