Titec J and H Handlebars. Mary Bars

So did these bars never become popular? I see Amazon carries one brand of Mary Handlebars.

Popular for what? Long distance trekking? Commuting?

I have J-bars on a beater hardtail that I use to put around and get across town to the pub. The multiple hand positions are pretty nice to have. It's a more relaxed position of riding, then you can hunker down in an aero-ish position. May not be for everyone and probably why Titec discontinued them. You can still get the same bars from Jones, albeit at a much larger price.

I was thinking this would help with my hunching over.

I have a set of Titec H bars on a Kona Big Unit 29er. When I'm on the grips it almost feels like drop bars.
I really like them.
