    Synchros riser bar and stem any good?

    Got this bike from my sister for my wife since my sis never rides it. It's a Retrospec FG/SS.. came with these Synchro riser bars and stem. Was thinking about putting them on my bike if they're any good, since the wife prefers her hybrid and will rarely ride the SS. Thoughts?

    Back in the 90's, Syncros was known to be upper end/higher quality components. They were similar to Thomson in respect to quality ( a lot of the high end mountain bike owners were in the Thomson or Syncros camp).

    Not sure if they have the same standards as today though.

    Yea... Noticed mostly mountain bikes when searching... Is it odd them being on a FG?

    Also found this.. Looks like they were pretty pricey originally
