Okay, just making sure. As I said above, the adjustability is limited compared to other bars of similar price. The extensions cannot be rotated up ala Levi, which some have found to work better for them. The pads are right on the basebar, so some have found they need a higher stem to get the same position as their older setup. You can cut the extenstions down to size, but once they're cut, that's it. If you want to go longer, there's not a lot of extension to play with which means ordering new extensions at $80-100. The width adjustment is okay, maybe an inch either way.
Overall, I really liked them. I got bored and bought the Ritchey Hammerheads, which I like, but wish I had my HED's back.
