    I had 680mm wide handlebars and I wanted to try a wider handlebar. These bars are 740mm wide, which is just what I was looking for and at the right price.

    Grip area undersize

        Comments about Nashbar Black Ops Mountain Bike Riser Handlebar:

        These would be really great bars except the ends where your levers, shifters and grips go are under size. It took me a while to figure it out, I had to crank down brake levers and shifters and locking grips way too far and they still were not tight. I finally figured it out when I was installing the Manitou MILO remote and I had the clamp bottomed out on itself and it was still lose on the bars. I have been buying Nashbar products for decades and I have always been very happy with them, but these bars are worthless if you cant even clamp your controls to them.

          The bars on my off-road/winter ride needed a little extra height and once again Nashbar had the perfect solution. Why pay twice as much for name brand?

                Comments about Nashbar Black Ops Mountain Bike Riser Handlebar:

                Purchased these along with a nashbar-brand stem and so far I really like both. They work well together and give the front end a dark, stealthy look due to the subdued graphics. The bars have 10mm markings so you can trim them from the stock 740mm sizing. Overall, the bars are good but I'm still getting used to the sweep and the low rise. The sweep was a little more that I was used to so it made the cockpit feel a tad 'cruiser-like'. I'm getting used it, and because I went wider it actually feels a bit more comfortable, but still strange. Similarly the rise is really low rise. Almost feels like a flat bar but it's obviously not. I had to raise my stem 0.25" even though I shortened it from stock by 20mm.

                Overall, I like the bar. It's durable and reasonably light; within a several grams of my stock bar (yet 40mm longer). Still getting used to the wee bit of extra sweep but please don't think it's like a Jones Bar or anything.
