Great for my gravel rig

Was looking for some flared bars for my gravel rig, but wasn't sure how wide to go. I took a chance on these CowChippers after reading a lot of positive reviews and I have zero regrets. Any less of a flare and the bars wouldn't feel any wider than normal road bars to me, and much more would put my arms in an uncomfortable spot. I love the curve in the drops, allowing for more hand positions than bars with a grip shaped bend built in, and the little markers for the shift levers helped make symmetrical set-up a breeze! These bars gave me everything I was looking for. The only improvement I could imagine would be to go carbon!

Comfy in the drops all day long

I have this bar on my Fargo which I use with full wrap fenders and 42c gravel or 2.0 29er tires for commuting and light off road as well as my tandem. Set up with a higher rise stem than my road bike, I find myself riding in the drops like I ride on the hoods on the road bike. The drop is low enough for plugging along in a headwind but high enough that I can rock them on the trails (like what you'd ride your hard tail MTB on). Being in the drops vs brake hoods feels way more stable on unpavedoff road stuff. The width in the drops yields more leverage, same reason MTB bars are getting so wide. Being able to ride in the drops allows for a more relaxed grip, looser arms and better flow (death grip makes for a rough and fatiguing ride) with out the risk of bouncing my grip loose from the hoods or off the front of them on rough stuff or unexpected dropsbumps. These bars are a must for gravel grinders, drop bar mountain bikes, tandems and I like them for commuting in poor weather (rain, frost, snow). I've not yet tried them on my cross bike because they might be too wide to bump through traffic in the chicanes. They also come in carbon for about 2 bills and 100 grams lighter. Great stability and comfortable, be sure to set them up high (think setting up the drops where your hoods would be).

I bought these for my new Felt Broam because stock bars are always too wide for us ladies!

Excellent handlebar, works better for gravelroad than the woodchipper

I went with a narrower bar than the Woodchippers that came with my Salsa Fargo. The Cowchipper is the perfect balance between wide and narrow, and the degree of flare spot on. I found the Woodchippers are just too wide for anything other than if you're riding single track the entire time. There's a reason these are found on the Cutthroat. The price is excellent for a handlebar this good-I haven't directly compared with the carbon version but I don't see any need for it since you probably have more give in your larger tires and frame.

I dont always use drops

But when I do I use cowchippers. Seriously though. Im not a drop rider, My hip flexors give me issues if I ride them too much. I do however find myself using these more

Often and the one thing Ive noticed is its easier to breathe because their wider and you can open your chest,

Great bar

I bought a Salsa Journeyman and opted for this bar instead of the stock one. Absolutely loved it. I have since installed one on our tandem and also converted my flat bar Surly Troll with this drop bar, just great!
