    What do you guys think of this bar/stem combo?

    http://www.jensonusa.com/store/product.aspx?i=GP605A00



    I'm looking to make my riding position even more foward and agressive than it currently is.





    Would that be a good buy? Its insanely cheap price has me concerned for its quality.



    Thanks.

    Its Easton so it has a lifetime warranty. When it comes to aluminum Easton knows whats up. They've been making bats and bike parts for a long time now. You will notice a lot of high end frames are made with Easton tubing as well. Good stuff.

    So it will be strong and durable then. Thats good.







    Is it overly heavy for a bar+stem combo?

    There are lighter options, but for the money it's a good choice!

    I saw that awhile ago and thought it was a great buy.

    get the 10 degree rise so you can flip it over...that would allow even more aggression.

    I have seen xc guys to it. Some stems are even advertised as reversible. Depends on what you consider aggressive riding I suppose haha

    to get significantly lighter than that combo, would be pretty difficult without spending a lot more.
