    WCS Logic II Handlebar Shape - You guys like it?

    I'm thinking of dropping some weight on my bike and looking to try a new shape handlebar. I do like mine, but its the only one i've ever had, so its cool to try new things. MY current is a FSA Vero Compact Drop.

    I'm interested in the Ritchey Logic II handlebar. I'll be moving from 38cm to 40cm wide. Can get if for $61.

    Anyone use this handlebar? How do you guys like it? comfortable on both the tops and drops?

    I've had handlebars with a similar shape. I found that having those distinct corners in the drops is really annoying. I was never able to set mine up to have "my" angle for both the ramps and the drops, and I sometimes use different parts of the drop on a traditional or compact bend; having the flat area with a distinct corner makes it a lot harder to do that.

    Obviously handlebars are one of the most personal parts of the bike - right up there with saddles, IMO. If you can try a bike that has bars like that before you spend the money, though, that would be a good idea.

    Like mine a lot. I wanted shallow drop and short reach and this bar gave me both in the 40cm size. I came from a classic bend Salsa Estrada bar and both have their good points.
    Unlike the other post, I have found mine to be very comfortable in the drops and a really superb fit.

    I like mine as well. I work in a LBS, so I was able to try these on another bike. My OEM handlebars just didn't feel right. I felt that switching to these would help with hand comfort. In which it did. But YMMV.
    You can't fix stupid.

    I have 2. I also like that the reach and drop increases as the bar size increases.

    +1 to this. I also have this bar. Purchased for the same reasons. Wanted shallow drop and shorter reach. Very happy with it.

    My bike came with them, and I've more or less adapted to them. I hate anatomical bars, but I just haven't gotten around to swapping them out. I've got the anatomical part of the drops adjusted to fit my hands, and I like the tops of the bars fine. The bend at the top doesn't bother me in any way. I don't really think about them much while riding, which means they must be working for me. Mine are also white, which is a fad that I hope goes away soon. When I clamp my aero bars on, chunks of white paint come off every time.
