Ritchey and Vertigo are 29ers, the Groovy is 650 and the Retrotec looks 26.

The bars are the new Jones ones, I guess sweep angle is debatable some might find the position more natural, I reckon if you blew threw the travel of the fox's it wouldn't matter what position you hands were in.

According to Rivendell Reader types, flat bars are the worst bars you can have. Of course, no one actually subscribes to that stuff. I think.

Of course they do! You'll find a load of 'alt bar' converts on here. Honestly try some marys,mungos,salsa's, ragleys,luv handles,ritchey,surly,soma's.....can look a bit gash though :o

I know, I was just kidding around. Got some Marys, they're alright (except they started rusting through the paint about 2 weeks after I got them). Prefer a normal riser bar myself. I'd quite like to try some of those fancy H type bars though.
