I'd like to try those canyon ones that are $108 on ebay. What computer mount hooks up with them? Wonder if there's an insert I can use with my ELEMNT.

Link?

I have the Cervelo lookalikes. Very happy with them. Owned them for 1.5 years.

I have the same ones and have broken two in the past 18 months. One time I hit a pot hole and did not crash but cracked both carbon rims and broke the bars right above where the lever clamps. Then I bought another set and wanted to really test it so I pulled up and pushed down as hard as I could while mounted to my bike and after a few efforts they started cracking same place. Even after those experiences, I bought two more sets, call me crazy

Are you talking about these integrated bar/stem combo or the Cervelo copies?

I think the discussion started on one type of combo bar and morphed into another. It's hard to know which version they are discussing now. The original post was about a Bontrager knock off.

Any more longer term experience with the Bontrager 1 piece clones?

Hi Roni1, Any pictures to see how they break? Ever tried to cut one to see if they broke at a junction between 2 pieces?
Curious if it's something we could reinforce with it the same way we repair a damaged carbon frame.

I've just received my set of the Canyon copies, they are pretty good copies come complete with top cap with moulded in canyon logo and aero spacers and 1 1/4" to 1 1/8" shims will post up some pics and weights tomorrow.

Can you post a link to them, also what degree would you say the stem is ?

Thx

I do not like the idea of "experiment" for stem and handlebar ... :p

May I ask if you're a heavy guy?

I'm 64kg and I've been jumping and going quite fierce out of saddle with these bars, as well as 1-2 times the bike parked against the curb suddenly blows over on it's side with these bars hitting the pavement. 400/90 is the smallest size and should be the one that produces the least leverage. That might explain it.

Maybe it's a weight/size issue?

/a

Edit: When I got them the feel was strange because they were so much lower than my previous bars where I had a flipped 7 degree stem. Now I'm already used to the new position and I feel faster. What helped a lot was to do some good stretching to allow the body to feel more comfortable in that race position.
