Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer?

Round 300 beans at last check. Perfect fodder for chopping and flipping.

Actually, the more I look at them, the more the ones on Baileys machine look nothing like the stock EC90.

Perhaps we're looking at a new model here?

Looks like it might be sleeved in carbon.

AFAIK, it's full carbon, with double layers on the tops.

The ones on the bike bend up at the end of the bar.
The top ones don't.

Yeah, I read those.
I assumed #1 was talking about the shoulder curve.
And I was merely elaborating on #3.
Neither specifically mentioned the bend at the end of the bar.
Sorry, man.

for the most part, they seem like a solution to a problem that doesn't exist, but these ones look pretty nice.

the easton website asserts that they are stronger than steel bars, and I don't doubt that for a moment at the price they're charging. i remember reading an interview with the company president where he said they make them just because he likes track racing and wanted them to have something like this in the lineup regardless of how much business sense it made.

these ones might be a good solution for the OP in the other handlebar thread

Re: Carbon durability

If you eat it hard enough to wreck carbon, you're probably going to mess up yr prized B123AAs just the same...

admittedly, those ridiculous bars could look pretty nice if they were painted.

These are officially HOT.
If the other bar thread you're referring to is mine, then no... I wouldn't degrade stuff like this to street use, and I def. don't and won't have the cash, either. Plus I'm not convinced that the flats would be all that comfy...

hah.. only on the fixed gear forum.

anyway, i was afraid of carbon once upon a time. the road world kind of forced me into it, though. i rode carbon frames, forks, bars, posts, and other stuff for years and can't say i've had a single bad experience. crashes and all. i'm sure it's happened with defective, damaged or old and/or poorly designed carbon parts, but it's nothing to be afraid of with regular use.

alarmists who tell you that carbon splinters spontaneously are full of it. arguing that a carbon bar doesn't have the same life as a steel bar is pointless. of course it doesn't, if you're looking for a bar you can ride for 20 years, you shouldn't be buying carbon anyway.

Formula 1 cars are made almost entirely out of carbron fiber now. If it can stand up to 1800kg of downforce for 2 hours and the craziest cornering forces this side of a fighter jet, i don't think the fatigue cycle of a typical bike will ever get it close to failure.
