|Pros / Cons? |
Where does the "cons" come from in Bar Cons?
Does the cable route under the tape? Do bars come grooved down the length of the drops?

|Pros: Lighter, cheaper, simpler (hence less prone to catastrophic failure), infinite adjustability for the front derailleur (and rear in friction mode) and bonus points for retrogrouch style.
Cons: Almost guaranteed to kneecap you at some point when you're out of the saddle. They're not as convenient.
I have no idea where the "cons" comes from; always wondered myself.
The cable does route under the tape, to the first bend; I've never seen a bar that was grooved to accomodate the cable, but that doesn't mean there isn't one out there.

|Well, that was simple enough, once someone spelled it out for me. No wonder I can't get hired for any of those analyst positions...
Thanx for straightening that out!
