    I thought my Easton Havon carbon bars had godawful graphics but those take it to another level, why can’t manufacturers make a plain carbon or alloy bar with no graphics as by the time you fit grips/shifters/brakes/dropper levers/suspension levers on your bars the graphics are redundant anyway and if they do show then all you see is a crap looking flash of colour or lettering – I like my Havens for their width and rise/comfort but i **** hate the graphics, in fact i **** hate garish graphics on everything, whether that be on my bike/clothing or whatever.

    Just give me stuff without graphics as i’m not being paid to advertise your **** products.

    What is the point of graphics under the grips that show a few letters by the time you fit everything to the bars – it just looks gash!.

    I think thomson are doing better on the graffix front.
    Interesting to see two highly regarded companies who are famous for milling/machining their own stuff in-house “producing” handlebars. If it turns out that they both get them done by the same far-eastern factory I will laught my ass off. 😀

    I don’t think they look that bad? But then I’m far from tarty about bike bits.

    Ahh, i didn’t realise the Thomson bars were available yet, good!, now to google somewhere that has them in stock.

    Anyone want a practically brand new Easton carbon Haven? – no marks on it at all and less than 100miles use off road, a couple of laps of Kirroughtree and, one at mabie and one at dalbeattie.

    £10 is generous, we all know that 2nd hand carbonz can’t be trusted 😉

    You drive a hard bargain……I’ll throw in a bag of jelly tots energy sweets as well?, if the bars break then send them back and i’ll repair them with some black duct tape – they’ll be as good as new*

    * may not be true, the buyer accepts all responsibility for riding like a tool and if they break then i do not do dental work nor can i reset broken facial bones.
