has anyone had a bad experience with a kestrel sl bar. i ask because i hit a bump and the bar made loud snap sound. looked for cracks but saw nothing. turns out the stem wasn't very tight and the bar rotated a little. so know i'm afraid to pull on the bars too hard. do kestrel bars have a weight limit. i'm 155lbs.
hmmm! Never had that bar but here is what I think!the bull
