Having used risers for a few years I am now finding the early 90's geometry to give me elbow pain, so I'm on the lookout for some funky handlebars with both sweep and rise. Anyone have anything suitable?

Zoom do a version of this bar http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/XLC-MATT-BLAC ... 3369bb2254

Try and hunt some down, they are a realy nice feel IMHO. I also have a pair of these and they are good too, but don't get the matt black ones as the coating is terrible!
