Hi,
Anyone out there using Bontrager 'Buzzkill' Harmonic dampers?
I've just got a pair to go in the bars, and I was wondering whether or not people found a difference with them?
Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks.:confused:

Yeah, I have noticed some difference. It's not earth shattering on normal roads but I definitely do notice them on rougher pavement. I ride a lot of county maintenance chip and seal roads...think Paris-Roubaix only with a ton of tar imbedded rock chunks and pebbles instead of large cobbles...and over a 3 hour ride I hardly even notice my hands.

They are nice if you happen to like placebos, otherwise they're a waste of money.

A guy I sometimes ride with has them. I asked if he noticed a difference and he said he did.

I have them.

The theory behind them does work. Archers have used the harmonic dampners for a while now. I'd say using them is a lot like changing toilet paper brands. Some folks would notice right away, others not so much.
