I own one, currently is on my parts bin. I'd strongly recommend to go with a FSA wing bar.

These are very similar but FSA has a little less funkier curves which allows for a better STI lever positioning.

To get the same lever position (than a standard bar) Easton's flat grab areas tend to have a huge up-slope which you may or may not like. Personally like it (more or less) parallel to ground.

I got mine at REI.

I'm also using the FSA ones. Really like the way they feel. I can't ever go back to round bars!

I paid around $75 for mine. Note that I did not buy the carbon bars, which were $250. The carbon is a touch heavier than the alloy and I didn't see any advantage to getting those anyway.

I know you can get the FSA's at Pasadena Velo if that helps.

I got the Eastons at REI cause I had a $50 gift card I had to use.... So far off the bike I like the feel of them and I am just going to try them and worst case scenario, I go back to my old bars.....

I had the EC70 on my last bike. I liked them. Very comfortable.
