i bought one on a whim, I had a shorter stem for my bike, wanted to give it a whirl. i thought that it was a little wide, but i only tried it for one ride. the flat top takes a second to get used to, but it quite comfortable, even with my smaller hands. i fully wrapped the bars to cover the logos, and i am not using brakes. i will put them back on soon, i just got used to flat bars on my ex road bike, and risers on my fixed. so im a little biased towards that style, and dont ride in a very aggressive position usually. i would like to get an even shorter stem to try them with, as riding on the horns has me stretched out a bit too much.
i say go for it, they are not really that expensive, your son might like them!
