Deals on Kestrel bars?(2 posts)

Deals on Kestrel bars?kushogun

I was looking at the lower posts about carbon bars and the people happy with the Kestrel bars validate my ever increasing interest with a carbon bar. Does anyone know of a dealer who has any sort of savings on the EMS model? Also, how does the drop and reach of the bars compare with other bars out there? Deep, shallow, long, short???

reach: 85mm
drop: 150mm, though they feel much more shallow than the Eubois I had, which apparently also had a 150mm drop.
I also prefer the shape of the Kestrels, compared to the Cinellis. While the Kestrels are marketed as having an *ergo* bend, it is much more subtle, thus easier for me to reach the levers (probably why they feel more shallow, too).

As far as savings go, I thought I saw Performance selling them for around $99 awhile back, but haven't really paid attention since. I think I paid about $120 at LBS.
