Just perusing some wider bars for my 29er - having stupidly broad shoulders plus nearly having my 710mm bars torn from my grip by a rocky course last week got me thinking an upgrade was in order.
I was somewhat amazed and bewildered by how wide "wide" is now considered. 820mm were the ones that sparked my incredulity... I mean... really? Is there any need for something that wide?
FWIW they were lovely carbon jobs and if I was blessed with disposable income I would have had me a set, but £120 was way too much for my blood!
Anyway, what width would people suggest as a sensible one to go for. Back when I last bought bars my Pro-Tapers were considered monstrous at about 720mm IIRC!
