Make the switch. It's cheap and feels incredible mile after mile.
The bar is a standard I.S.O. sizing for mountain bikes 22.2 mm (7/8th in) diameter on the bar and 25.4mm (1 in) around the stem clamp.
Too small for bar ends, but fits just about anything with a clamp on it.
Loads of hand positions and lots of ways to get used to it.
A single roll of Bike Planet tape took care of all of the hand position.
Basically this was a great purchase for the money these offer vastly more hand positions and gadget real-estate then typical handlebars and come at a very reasonable price.
This was inexpensive (though shipping nearly doubled the cost) and I had to change out the stem in order to attach it to the bike so by the time it was all done it set me back quite a bit. Moral: Don't let your local shop tell you what is and isn't comfortable for you.
The handlebar itself is quite nice. It's lightweight aluminum and really gives you a lot of places to put your hands. All of the cautions from the bike shop were unwarranted. They left the road brakes on because there were "too many curves". I'm not sure if that's at all accurate or just that they don't understand touring vs road riding. When you're carrying another 50 pounds or more in gear, food, etc. being able to get into an aero position really isn't a consideration.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that if you're using a local bike shop they may not be familiar with this type of bar and may try to dissuade you.
They don't seem to moan or make noises. But they do move / flex around. In all fairness at the outside of the bars you can place a lot of torque.
If you like to pick up full sized ladies, for a ride on the handle bars. Make sure they keep there feet out of the spokes. : -)
For bicycle path duties these should be a nice change.
