I chose this handlebar because I wanted a little extra width over the stock Specialized bar on my Enduro. We do have some pretty tight trails in the area so I was a bit concerned about the negative effect of clipping all those trees. At 28"w, I was able to add ~2" and so far I haven't encountered any mishaps. I can't honestly say that I've noticed a huge difference in the actual handling, but I've only been out a couple of times since I got 'em. Anyway, graphics are killer, the weight & rigidity are typical for 31.8mm aluminum and the bend feels comfortable. I went up a few clicks on fork compression due to the lower rise. I didn't have any real "problem" with my OEM bars, they were fine...hopefully I'll be able to appreciate the width difference when I get a chance to ride a little more; but, if nothing else the coolness factor cannot be overstated.
