No sooner do I open my mouth... I firmly place my foot in it!

I found 'em not on WTB's page, but they are fo' sale over on WebCyclery. Guess I'd better cough up some dough and get you a report, eh?

Cheers!

I use them on the single speed cross and the single speed mtb. Just make sure you're geometry is set up for them. The drops should put your hands at the level they would be with a flat bar, which means for the mtb you've got to jack them up with a high rise stem. On my normal stem, I was doubled over like a jacknife to get at the drops.

The drops are so wide that you can get incredible yanking power to get over steep stuff. Very handy on a single.
