Love this handle bar. Very light and stable. Just be careful with the clamping force - the Easton EA90 is easy to get a secure fit and strong clamp that doesn't shake or rattle (use a torque wrench!). The bar did seem to help get a little road noise and smoothed the ride once I had the right tape. Used Zipp Service Course Tape and now rides amazingly - and of course my bike is lighter for it vs. stock Cannondale alloy handlbar (saved about 100 grams). No need to use gel grips with that tape and this bar.
