I just installed some on my winter/cargo/touring bike yesterday. So far they're comfortable but the handling doesn't feel as steady as it did with the On-One Midge bars (off-road drop bars) I was using before this. The main problem is that the high leverage position puts you further from your brakes than I'd like. If your roads are kept reasonably clear they'd be fine, but for rutted, unplowed snow like we have here you'd probably be better off with straight bars. Personally, I'll probably be swapping the Midges back on next winter, but for summer usage I think the trekking bars will be great.
