    Comments about Salsa Cowbell MD 2 Handlebar:

    This is the second pair. I had these on a previous bike and liked the wide stance and shallow drop. As a previous reviewer said, I ride in the drops more with these bars.

          Comments about Salsa Cowbell MD 2 Handlebar:

          I installed these on both my bikes. First installed on my Surly Long haul Trucker, I use for commuting. Loved them so much I installed them on my Cannondale Synapse that I ride for faster road rides. I ride about 100+ miles a week and as an older rider need the comfort. These bars are great and provide max comfort. They are just so natural , that I find myself riding in the drops more often then ever. Highly recommend!!!

            Comments about Salsa Cowbell MD 2 Handlebar:

            I wanted a shallow-drop slightly flared bar for my Genesis Croix de Fer for greater off-road comfort and control, and more comfort on the road too. I spotted the Salsas at a bike show in London and thought they looked ideal. Couldn't find them anywhere in the UK so I ordered them from Jenson. They're exactly what I was looking for. I can stay in the drops for as long as I want and still operate the brakes/gears. Good price too. I'm very satisfied!

            Excellent cyclocross bar

            Comments about Salsa Cowbell MD 2 Handlebar:

            Fitted to a Scott CX Team frame that had been set up as a flat bar commuter. Needed a wide 46cm bar with splayed short drops and the Cowbell suited the need. It is comfortable and feels natural to hold. Seems well enough made but apart from the shape there's little to justify the extra spend over your average no-name bar in terms of looks and finish. So if you are after bling then forget it. Bar internal diameter is 20mm so bear that in mind with respect to bar end plugs - even Salsa plugs don't fit it!
