    Flat sweep bars

    Hello all. I'm thinking about either getting the On One Mary or Titec Flat Tracker bars for my road bike as I don't like drop bars. Anyone using one of these and can comment? Thanks.

    You've heard of flat bar road bikes, right? I figured there would be more users of these bars on this forum rather the road bike forum.

    I use an all arounder bar on my mountain bike. It's flat with 15 degree bends and is great for up to about 40 miles on the road. They sell one similar to it at misfit cycles. I also use 100mm risers mounted upside down on my single speed with about the same limit although the risers give me about three usable hand positions.

    Nope, I wouldn't be any help. Never even considered getting a flat bar for any of my roadies. I think the OP would probably get more help in either the road forums or the commuter forums.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.
