I had the k-wings before these and they were just a bit too much. These are a great comprimise between the k-wing and a standard bar - they have a nice flat spot on the top for endurance rides, and have a good, long return on the drop section which I like. the reach and drop are short which, again, I think is just how these bars should be.
I've put about 2,000 miles on my wheels and they have been simply amazing. I've not had any of the issues listed below - heat and broken spokes. I wonder if there were a few bad batches in the past (mine are 2013). I live in Utah so lots of big descents. They brake flawlessly (was concerned when they were new and the pads weren't seated because I had a hard time slowing them down on descents. Now that they're seated, no more issues). This is my first set of carbons, but I'm amazed how much smoother they are than aluminum.
The title says it all. I love the Twin Six styling and this argyle number is no exception. But I really wish it had the grippy stuff on the cuffs that I'm used to with higher-end jerseys. I'd buy it again, but it would need to be on sale.
Do they clip in and out well? Yes. But beware that walking in these things is downright scary. I look like an 80 year old man hobbling around in these, being careful not to fall and break a hip. I'll be buying the version with the grips. They do wear out quickly, but buying new clips is cheaper than surgery.
What year is this frame?
I was a bit skeptical of the "universal" nature of these feet. I just wasn't sure that I wanted a rack with a generic strap for the rails. But I could not be more happy with these feet! They are very simple to install and the strap is legit - looks like it will last a long, long time. I really like that the adjustment tool is built into the foot itself, and I like that I can take this off one car and put it on another, assuming it has rails. This was a great purchase.
I matched it up with some Rocky Mount Pitchforks just in case I need the trays when going with friends who own Yak racks.
I bought these on account of I have both Thule and Yakima racks (don't ask me why) and I like that they work with both. I strapped 'em to my Crossroads, put my bike up there and drove all the way to St. George. When I got there, the bike was still on my car. 5 stars for that.
I will say they don't do me much good when the Ogres come out, and it took me forever to move a pile of hay with 'em, but for bikes they are money.
I've put a few hundred miles on these bad boys and so far so good. I was flatting out on every ride with my old meats and not one yet on these.
So I was a little bent that I trashed my last set of tires using them on my rollers. So when I saw this, I had to try it out (bought a set when I bought my replacement tires). So far so good - quiet, stayed on the rims, good traction on the rollers and what not. I bit pricey for spares, but I like that I'm not trashing my road tires.
