Does anyone have any experience with these ???

If so, do you like them?

Apparently the mechanic who built my bike likes them. I think they're good if you've got big hands and want a tight grip on the drops. Vibration damping properties are probably redundant if you're wearing padded gloves.

Interesting.

I just rewrapped my bars with a layer of cloth rim tape underneath for extra padding. Huge difference. I love it so far. I also calked the rear cable groove with silicon which made a big diff too.

Bummer! My Cinelli Nerve bars didn't come with those. Oh well.
