back on track :roll:

yes I do have some, they're OK, but I found you have to do up the stem clamp really tight else when you go over bumps the handlebars twist :shock:

I prefer Rody's Luv Handles any day if you want swept back ergonomic bars (I have a set in green), although interestingly he has Mary's on one of his bikes on his site.

awaycaboose loves his mary's. He has them on his on-one singlespeed.

I had a go and found them very comfy albeit I missed my bar ends.....................................................................................................


beginning to realise I am a real luddite :evil:

Luv Handles are no more expensive than a set of carbon bars :D

Anyway, I ran single speed. But here's room for shifters.
