I switched to these from track bars on my fixed gear since the drop was so low. Did everything i needed them to. The drop isnt too deep and thats why i chose these. For the money, u couldn't ask for more.
I have a FSA Compact bars on my main bike & like the bend & fit. I bought the 42mm Omega Compacts for my spare bike, they replaced some 44mm older, Ritchey WCS anatomic bend bars. The 2mm narrower bars as well as a shallower drop have improved the overall fit and comfort of the bike.
I finally decided to try shallow and compact bars. What a difference they make. These bars are not carbon but I can't imagine any property besides weight that I am missing. These bars make a huge difference in comfort when in the drops and all at a great price.
Sure carbon bars are sexy, but practical?
If you ever fall down, or if your bike falls down when you're not on it, then these are the bars for you. Affordable, comfortable and don't crack after a mishap... just sayin'.
