    On-One Mary bars

    So I just scored some On-One Mary handlebars for a good price.

    Being a religous riser bar person myself I am super exited to try them out.
    Reading up on them it seems like they are like risers but even more comfy.
    I don't think I have ever been more exited about handlebars ever.
    Hope it is still true once i actually ride them

    It will take a while for them to get here too and even longer until I can ride them (since i am heading to Switzerland until the 9th). So feed me with some info in the meantime. Is anywone using them? How do you like them?

    Haven't used them, but if you don't like them, I'll buy 'em. Seriously.

    I've wanted to get my hands on a pair for the mtb for a while now.

    One of these days I should really do something about my strange handlebar fetish.

    I feel you. It is the one component I keep messing with.
    The risers I have kick butt and I love them very much but then Mary comes along and looks all special and I start thinking that life could be better with her. For some reason this keeps happening with handlebars.

    I certainly will, but unfortunately it won't be until Jan 12th or so.
    That is why I am bugging you all right now so I can hear how awesome they are while I am jonesing to get them.

    Love them. Much better than the Jones H-Bars I was running before and I really liked those.

    [HIJACK] I was just about to post for some more info about On-One bikes after seeing a couple on FGG. Anyone care to give a heads up where more info can be found? Did a quick Google with no luck. [/HIJACK]

    Except for NYC where I got into some really tight squeezes I think the "you need NARROW bars in traffic" statement is highly exagerated. I run my risers a tad wider than sholder width right now and I have never gotten in a situation here in SF where i would have needed them narrower. I could easily run them a 10cm wider which would make them about the same as the Marys (and if they should still need some trimming then so be it). The angles might be weird we shall see. I really like the move back/move forward concept - in theory at least. If they are more comfy, just as snappy and allow me to do all the fancy fashion skids they'll stay on the bike if not then jim-bob will get them.

    I wanted to love Mary, I really did.

    I bought a pair for my mountain bike. Maybe I didn't give then enough time, but after a couple of miles on pavement, I pulled them off and went back to my Salsa Pro Moto 11 degree flat bars. The flat bars look way cooler on my 29er anyway. I thought the extreme sweep would be more ergonomic, but it actually felt like my wrists were being bent outward. (On a side note, in my opinion riser bars are silly - the extra upward bend is totally unneccessary. Mary would be better if she were bent only in one plane without the extra rise).

    29ers are the new fixed-gear.

    seriously though, offroad fixed on my crosscheck has brought me more joy than riding my track bike in the city ever did.

    I see you've been poking around my website. You're referring to this I assume:

    I've had it built up for almost a year but no decent pictures of the build. I don't bring a camera with me when I'm on the road (no camelback except when commuting). I'm taking it out tomorrow for a nice long ride an maybe I'll remember a camera.

    Anyhow, fantastic bike and really responsive. The forks are Wound-Up and super stiff, nice for climbing the SoCal mountains. I put more miles on the road bike but more time on my Bontrager - love the dirt. I ditched the bullhorns for drops pretty quickly. The bullorns were nice for climbing but prefer drops for everything else - hence the Midge bars on my dirt rig.

    Thanks. I wish I had more time to climb on real rock. If I didn't like my family and my bikes so much...
    Oh well, no complaints from me.
