I weight about 175lbs and i'm pretty smooth but saw some reviews and made me sceptical. anyone rode them? i never broke a bar and i dont want to so that's why i ask. at 160g it's pretty light so i'm wondering if it would hold on for dh riding
For what it is worth I ran an Easton Monkey-Lite XC bar on my DJ/Urban bike for well over a year. It was moved to my XC bike now but not for fear of it breaking. I have not and do not personally know anyone that has broken a carbon bar, though I am sure it has happened. My bar is a 1" rise 25.4 also.
