    Belly up to the bars

    One thing I like about riding with other folks on club rides in looking and discussion other folks equipment choices. Today I ran into a guy using the FSA plasma road bars. I looked them over carefully, tried the grip feel - these look like a major comfort upgrade, not to mention a weight reduction. The flat top bar had a feel that was a lot more comfortable than the round bars they have a compact geometry that doesn't push you as low in the drops. Anyone have any experience with these? Not only to the look very cool - I think they would make a nice upgrade.

    I am not willing to give up the rotational adjustment of the bars in the stem, but if the orientation FSA dictates works for you, then I guess the concept makes a modicum of sense.
