    not the same thing, but I have a bontrager 17 degree flat bar that's 690mm in width. I tried and tried to like it but no amount of up/down angle adjustment made it work for me. but handlebars are very personal, so they only way to know what works for you is to TRY IT. I am now experimenting with some Kore risers, Carnegies, and some Origin 8 dirt drop bars. the carnegies are my favorite right now, but I have not ridden the drops yet.

    for single-speed riding, most people seem to find that wide is good, and 620 will probably be far too narrow if you follow that philosophy. 685 seems to be a gateway to wide bars.

    I have a 17deg in 690 and 710. So far I do like the bars I get them dirt cheap I paid $10 for the 690 and got the 710 on a handlebar trade. I eventually want to go Salsa carbon in the same specs though to lighten up the build even more.

    What I am trying to say is their a great bar if you can get them really cheap, I would never pay even close to full price for them though.

    I have ran one in the past, it wasn't wide enough for my taste. On that bike I believe I swapped to a wide salsa pro moto.
