    Anyone got ’em?

    I know they look pimp, and can get a new pair for £85, but is there really any point over my current EA70 risers?

    The weight saving is about 25gm, so am I just being flash if i get them??

    I’m laid in bed feeling sorry for myself (fell off y’day and ache all over), and boredom and internet connection and just been paid = kid in a candy store…

    I know Doddy’s got them on his bike, and he’s everyone’s hero….!

    you don’t need them, they are silly also the nanotubes will get in your lungs and give you cancer,

    Try the monkeylite XC ones you’ll save 110grams with them.

    Don’t think XC bars would offer me 100% confidence to be honest.

    Not sure about these bars….
    Bike radar calls them “The best all-round bar available….”. Apparently Doddy himself crafted them from 45 smaller tubes (nano tubes)…..

    Click ‘buy’ or not….

    take your grips off and replace it with bar tape.

    you’ll save more than 25g!!

    I’ve got the xc version and they do reduce vibration etc compared to my alloy bars.

    Got the xc’s and the dh’s both are great, the extra width of the dh’s
    is brilliant for handling.Where can you get them for £85?

    I’ve got them! Replaced Raceface evolve DH bars, definitly worth it, take a lot of buzz out of the ride and they feel quite light, nice and wide too. I won’t be going back to alloy bars.
    Go on you know you want to buy them????

    (it wasn’t actually that big – just a bit awkward!)

    PP – are you coming next week???

    I’ve seen two sets of the Eastons snap. Why spend money to save 20g and have a much less reliable bar? In my time I’ve never seen alloy bars snap but a few carbon snap, carbon is alot less common. I think that says it all.

    It is especially daft on a dh bike where bars do get scored and marked.

    Put some xc rims on your dh bike if you want to save weight.

    It’s not a dh bike…..
    …but the XC bars would probably snap given how cack footed i can be!

    I’ll give ’em a whizz around Afan this coming weekend (if they arrive) to compare, eh!

    i don’t think you’ll snap them if theyre made for DH. then again i could be wrong (have to say that otherwise kaiser will accuse me of dishing out advice without knowing what i’m on about! ooo errrrr!)
