flexing aluminum drop bars - dangerous?
I recently picked up a cheap but new Modolo X-Tenos 8-bend handlebar. It's nice and light, and when I mount brake hoods on it, and lean a bit on them, the bar flexes a fair bit. Sure, all road bars flex when you do this, but this one flexes more than my others (Cinelli Giro, Nito B115, Nashbar random Taiwanese ergonomic bend). The question is: is this a danger for breaking while riding? I don't stand and sprint much, but I'm 6'5" and 185# and would like to have the peace of mind that when I do sprint, even if infrequently, the bar will be okay. What do you think? It's 44cm.
