Strengths:    Strong enough for the track, and if you race on them, then they're light enough to race with, arern't they?

Weaknesses:    None.

Bottom Line:   
I've had one form or another of the TTT Forma on a couple of my bikes, including the Forma SL on my track bike. They're comfortably shaped and dependable, everything a bar should be.

Strengths:    fairly light weight
relatively low cost

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
I bought these bars to replace the THE bars on my Lemond BA. The placement of the ergo flat spot on these is much better. They are fairly light at 250 gms, stiff enough for my 180 lbs, and I've had no problems at all with them. They aren't race light, but they don't cost $150.00 either.

Strengths:    I had fallen seriously two times, broken brakelevers but not a handle. Wonderful!

Weaknesses:    Weight

Bottom Line:   
I think it's the best handle for russian roads (sometimes worth than Paris-Roubaix). It's rather light and very strong, especially for 10 bucks!

Date Reviewed: April 8, 2002

Strengths:    The stiffness of the bars. Price to performance ratio is perfect.

Weaknesses:    If you're a weight weenie, then the 20-30 gram weight "penalty" over competition level bars.

Bottom Line:   
These bars are relatively light when considering the inexpensive price tag, but they are still without the gimmick of oversized bar/stem combos. I am a 200lb rider with a better than average sprint, and I feel no noticeable flex when pulling up on the bars. I recommend these bars to anybody, except for folks that refuse to realize that its better to save weight in the drivetrain than on non-rotating mass liek handlebars.
