Great pick for all-road / gravel bike
Bars have a good flare in the drops - perfect for giving just a bit more room for your knees. They are stiff, light, and a perfect fit for my gravel / monstercross bike. Highly recommended.

I like these bars
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.

PROS: Lightweight

Great Handlebars
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!!!

The flares really do make a difference
I never felt comfortable in the drops until I got the cowbell's. Also when I am climbing off road steep inclines, I am not banging my quads into the bar ends.

Perfect upgrade bar for your gravel/mountain style
Perfect replacement handlebar for stock one. The extra cm and bar shape changed my bike from slow and boring to fast and fun. I can breathe again and grab the bar everywhere with easy.
Thank you Salsa.

The perfect bar for on and offroad
I couldn't find this product in the UK so I ordered it from Jenson expecting it to take a week or more to arrive. It was delivered two days later! I was stunned and very impressed. I had to pay a bit of extra tax on delivery as well as the international shipping so the overall price of the product wasn't as keen as it might have been but I have no complaints about that.

PROS: Perfect Shape, Lightweight

BEST USES: On- And Off-road, Casual Riding

Excellent cyclocross bar
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!

PROS: Bar diameter, Width Options

CONS: Price

BEST USES: Cyclocross, Commuting

Anyone know what kind of bar end plugs fit?
Drew B on Feb 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I use the regular plugs that come with the bar tape. The inner diameter of the tube is either the same as (or very similar to ) the diameter of any other drop bars
