    Titec J-Bar

    I just picked this up today.



    Feels great - you get a tremendous amount of lateral leverage which should be great in technical sections.

    Only problem was trying to squeeze the XT brakes over the bar 'horns' - it took a lot of pounding with a mallet.

    Also, I'm not quite sure how far forward to angle them, but will experiment.

    Great bars. I've run some form of alt bars for the last few years, including both the Titec Jones bars. Great for SSing and riding rigid.

    Mine are positioned tilted slightly down, seems to work quite well. I may have to get myself a set of Jones Loop Bars aluminum if they are ever in stock.

    Mine are angled slightly down, roughly the same angle as the stem, also. I would highly recommend wrapping your bar with cork bar tape. The tape is nice if you switch hand positions often...The H-bar is my favorite handlebar

    Just got a set of old school Jones H-Bars - they look just like these. And I found that angeling them a little upward makes it easier for me to grab the brake levers. Well easier than buying a new set of paul loves with longer levers.
