    I just picked up a pair of these (BTW why is it considered a pair?).

    Mary Bars

    I put them on my Mostly commuter Hardtail.. They are so comfortable!!! It puts your hands in a more comfortable/natural position. Money well spent!!!
    Only drawbacks are mounting lights/computers to them... there is no real straight section so things are on an angle

    I have used em and I like em.

    For a little less money you can try some Origin 8 Space Bars.

    Also there is a guy with a site called Bike on Snow that has a bar called the FloWing - supposed to be even better than the Mary Bars.

    Just FYI.

    Look cool for commuting.

    Does it feel weird as far as steering goes?

    nope not all all.. it seems natural.. even when standing....

    lifting the front, bunnying hopping, and wheelies did seem a little strange though.

    I'm going to hit the trails with the bike this weekend.. I'll really find out if i like them them
