StarStarStarStarStar Be ready to replace your cables

Pros

They look cool. You get multiple places to put your hands and allow you to be more upright for those long days. You can mount every gadget in earth on them and still have room for more.

Cons

Perhaps you know this already but it came as a surprise to me. My bike has a flat bar with the factory cables that work fine with the flat bar but are too short for the Moloko bar. So, be prepared for the added expense of new cables. In my case, my hydraulic lines to my brakes require a bike shop to deal with so my total cost will likely be 75 bucks more than the cost of the bar.

Other Thoughts

Since I haven’t had a chance to use them I can’t share a whole lot about the bars in action. After receiving them they look well made and I feel confident they will make my next ride on the Katy or one day again on the GAP a little more enjoyable.

Pros

I’m a big guy and the sweeping of these bars helps me get my weight back when descending. The multiple hand positions are great for battling fatigue. The width makes me feel in good control.

Cons

These things are heavy.

Other Thoughts

My favorite handlebars at the moment.

Pros

Many hand positions

Cons

Using bar ends on the front is weird

Other Thoughts

I bought this for my Surly Disk Trucker. I find when touring I almost never use the drops so I was looking for something that would give me many position options while maintaining a more upright posture. I think this is a good option though I have some arthritis in my wrists and I haven’t had a chance to do a long trip yet. We will see. Note it takes a larger stem than the bike came with. I think it was a 31.7 make sure to check.

StarStarStarStarStar Love these bars!
