it works... having that extra length really does improve control. I have 2 bars( .. white and black. the white bar has paint and is a little slippery for handlebar grip. The anodized black bar seems better in this regards. I use ergon GP !/ andspecialized body geo Contour grips and they work and fit great with the bars. I cannot find another bar with 3" rise and 760+ mm length.
