    Handle bar choices...

    What handle bar do you ride and why? I personally ride a salsa moto ace 670mm with 11 degree sweep. If you ride a sweep back bar, why do you like it?

    Stylo world cup SS bar.
    Its mad wide (700mm), has a moderate sweep (9 deg), is relatively light (180 g), is mad comfy, and looks sweet on my bike!

    How does the 17 degree compare to the 11? I was thinking about trying a 17.

    Sunline V1 OS flat bar, 762mm. 5 deg up and 9 deg back sweep.

    Strong, wide, works.

    easton haven carbon 711mm, 9 bend, 5 upsweep, 20mm rise, and 170g. i like the extra width for leverage on technical rocky climbs, and control for the descents.

    Mary Bar on the Swift because it's comfortable, Escobar on the Pugsley because I had one in the shed and was building on the cheap plus the previous owner had cut the steerer very sort and I wanted some rise.
    If you need me I'll be at the bar

    Flat Kore Torsion bar. 760mm wide with a short Thomson stem (70mm). I like it much better than the 680mm/110mm stem combo I had previously.
