    On-One Mary Handlebars on Road Bike?

    I'm thinking of swapping out the Nitto Noodle bars on my Rivendell for the Mary bars from On-One.
    I want to sit a little more upright with less reach than I currently have now. I originally had the moustache bars but those were too funky for me. The Mary bar looks like a nice compromise and gets great reviews.
    The only pics i've seen of these bars is on mountain bikes.
    Anyone have these on their road/touring bike?

    I know this is kind of off topic, but that bike looks really cool. It also looks like a place from around here.

    Also looks like a great place to go pick morels =)

    I've always wondered about that style of bars though. The seem like they might be awkward if you had to stand up and really hammer down.

    Edit: Maybe it was just that picture. I've actually been debating on finding a bar that was sort of like this as well. After some image searching I also found this link http://velospace.org/node/1019 . Closer to a touring/road bike than a mountain bike... but different yet =0

    I have the Origin 8 Space Bars on my Kilo TT. They're a bit wide which causes a noticeable difference in handling which I'm guessing wouldn't be that different on a mountain bike.

    My Salsa La Raza with Mary On-One bars





    I have a neck injury that precludes me from using drop bars, can't raise my head up enough to look forward when I'm in a tuck.

    I love the On-One bars, they put your wrists and arms into a very natural and comfortable position.

    And here are a few images I have of comparing an Albatross bar and a North road to the Mary.

    I've got one on my single speed mountain bike and I absolutely love it It's especially nice on the elbow I broke last year...it doesn't strain it like a traditional bar does.

    My wife has the Mary bar on her Cannondale 2000T with grip shifters and Ergo grips.
    She really likes the set up.
    Sorry, I don't have a pic.

    The forward bends are pretty different, but VO's Milan bar might be a contender. One of three bars I'm considering for my build in January.

    And, out of curiosity, what don't you like about your moustache bars?
