    Dumbo

    Have you used the Dumbo handlebar? What do you think of it? Where can I get one?

    Dead last finish is better than did not finish and infinitely better than did not start.

    Looks like a lot of places for it to flex and/or creak.
    Uhmm...

    I saw handlebars similar to this last summer while touring in Switzerland. I would say that this "wrap-around" design was the most popular handlebar configuration with European bike tourists. I met few tourists who had drop bars.

    This design certainly allows a lot of hand positions, and more postures translates into greater comfort.
