    I'm not. Too flat for my tastes and not near enough sweep for a DH bar. Renthal FatBar intrigues me far more.

    It's nice to see new stuff, and see them expanding - particularly with more domestic manufacturing, but this ticks up to "meh" on the excitement scale for me. Granted, I'm not shopping for new bars right now, either.

    Though a bar made with those specs, with their precision in the states for $99 is fabulous. If shopping for a new bar, I'd certainly consider it a contender. Only slightly more expensive than my current bars, at the same weight within a few grams, and as wide as I like to run.
    I believe the clouds in my coffee more than the weatherman on t.v.

    Would be nice if they did it in 35mm as an option, as that looks to be the new standard that's coming in. Only available in black as well, when everyone else has a multitude of colors available.

    Heres the sales pitch- They're another pair of aluminum handlebars but this time with a different name lazer etched on them!

    Tough to get excited about that.

    It would also be cool if someone made an mtb bar with a Powerlite powerbend - would preclude the use of lock-ons but I used to love those bars for bmx.
