    Yes

    Only because I swapped the parts (minus the cantis) from my cross frame to a road frame to build up a 2nd road bike. They work like handlebars should. I don't think I would race with them in crits due to the flaring out in the drops. I don't know how helpful this is.

    Welp, a couple of months ago I ordered a Salsa bar (Short n' Shallow Moto Ace) for my CX rig. It was Ok in every other way, but for me on this particular bike, I didn't care for the rounded corners on the tops. I'm more used to a sharper bend (like with Ritchey bars) where I can get my hands out to the sides of the bar easier. It makes for better control off-road. I returned it for a refund.

    That may not be as important to you if you're mainly on-road.

    Salsa Poco

    I have Pocos on one bike and WCS by Ritchey on the other . Like the Ritchey better but have to admit the slightily heavier (15 grams) Pocos are stiffer. Being no sprinter I could care less, the Ritcheys feel better. The Salsas have slightly less reach, however.

    I'm a big guy. I like them because they are nice and wide. I use them on my cross and road bike.
