Comments about Salsa Bend Bar 2:

I bought these alt bars going into the summer and have put a few monthes of riding in on them. They are mounted on a Kona Unit SS with rigid P2 fork and Ardent 2.4x29. I weight 190 lbs and ride 5x week. I got them for the climbing position, as I have a lot of trees along my trails and didn't want to catch a barend:) but wanted the climbing advantage. Better grips climb better than these bars, little heavy and got more kinked wrists more standing and climbing that riser bars:( Probably just not for me. They are 4* because they work, look good and aren't too heavy or expensive. Give them a "GO" , they work...just not for me.

    Comments about Salsa Bend Bar 2:

    I've been using the Salsa Bend 2 (23 deg sweep) on my rigid Surly Ogre for about 6 months with no complaints. The sweep provides a natural feeling hand position that I find to be extremely comfortable paired with Ergon GP1 Biokork grips. I've also used this bar with Salsa Backcountry Lock-On grips for shorter mountain rides with no troubles as well, but I find myself mostly riding mixed terrain for 3 or 4 hours at a time recently and the Bend 2 and Ergons make an excellent wrist-pain-free pair.

    When researching these I found that many people feel that a bar with this kind of sweep compromises handling, but I haven't found this to be the case. The Salsa 2 is plenty wide and provides enough leverage that I feel confident when navigating technical terrain. That being said I wouldn't recommend this kind of bar for downhill and other more extreme riding. They seem best suited for fireroads, singletrack, and commuting situations.
