Here's what others have to say...

4 5

I have child-sized hands, so I really appreciate the small diameter of these bars on my Juliana Primerio bike.
They were weird to get used to at first, they made my hands fall asleep, but after a few rides I found them more comfortable and I wouldn't swap 'em.

I like the many color choices offered by Julian for grips, which keeps it fun.

My only complaint is that I can't move the shifters any further out because the bars become too narrow for the collars, which is unfortunate. This is my only complaint. Otherwise the bars are holding up beautifully and I do like the smaller diameter.

Some women may not need this, but I found it helpful since my hands are so small. Other ladies I've talked to found them to be too small and too narrow for their liking. I'm not a freerider, so I don't want honkin wide DH-bars - they work for me.


Goat Drinks!
Boys in the band ordered GOAT DRINKS!

Waitress, I need two more GOAT drinks.
Then I'm headin south 'fore my dream shrinks.
I gotta where it's warm.

I gotta go where it's warm.
I gotta go where it's warm.
I gotta go where there ain't any snow,
where there ain't any blow,
'cause my fin sinks so low.
I gotta go where it's warm.

I know very little about bikes.
In fact, it's rather embarrassing. Seriously.

And while I am taking small strides to change this terrible dearth of basic knowledge, I consult folks around the Backcountry / Competitive Cyclist office in the meantime.

In asking our most knowledgeable, experienced and veteran bike nerd employees - 4 out of 4 agreed.
I didn't even say anything...all 4 recommended it independently of each other.

What do I know about bike lube? Nothing.
But these strong recommendations were enough to convince me that this was the only option for lube.

My nO_Ob observations:

*It's a nice yellow color.

*The texture is viscous without being nasty - I kept hearing how the 'lite' part is sposto be really nifty. Sure. It's great. I think?

*I don't mind the smell - It's a weird combo of sweet, candy (smarties maybe?) with the acrid scent of a rubber tire. Interesting but not offensive.

* Pretty easy to clean up, though I have nothing else to compare it to....what do I know?

I randomly stumbled upon these while surfing the backcountry and was immediately intrigued. I LOVE meat, like... a LOT.

So this could be the next best thing since PRO-Bar! (For culinary reference I HATE...I mean loathe cliff bars, I have a problem with both the texture and the way they freeze when I go skiing and I find the flavor flat and boring).

I wasn't, however, ready to commit to 12 EPIC bars and wanted to try each bar in its natural habitat prior to investing in a 12-pack. I was also really curious about what they would look like?
Here are my findings.

Beef : SMOKEY, couldn't really taste much of the spice but the cherries added a nice balancing flavor with a pleasant aftertaste.

Bison: I would say this one was my least favorite as I didn't love the aftertaste. Couldn't really separate the taste of bacon or cranberries and found the smoky taste a little overwhelming. I found this one a bit too salty for my liking. Probably wouldn't buy a 12 pack, but lean meat bison lovers may feel a little differently.

Lamb: 10/10! I bought a 12-pack, if that tells you anything! This was my favorite flava-flav. Really loved the savory taste of the mint and immediately wanted a bigger portion after devouring the bar while fly fishing on the Weber river.

Turkey: 2nd fav. Such a great aftertaste that I immediately wished I had more.. This will be the 2nd box I buy.

NOTE: In my findings, MEAT bars should not be consumed for very active endeavors such as mountain biking or running. It's really a much better slow-sport kind of meal replacement. I developed my own MEAT SWEAT rule continuum. If you are sweating, as in wiping moisture from your brow, it's probably not best to consume a meat bar. I don't like meat sweats, so...

...It worked best when I was paddleboarding, hiking or fly fishing. My boyfriend was able to gobble a lamb bar at the top of our bike ascent, but I declined as it would most likely give me meat burps...
