    My mate has been using them for a while.

    They have a reasonably wide footprint / contact patch on the bars and haven't had any problems.

    I used them for a while. Never had any issues.

    I used some for a while. Ended up ditching them and buying 31.8 bars simply because 25.4mm were way too flexy. If you're going 31.8mm to 35mm, no worries, but I wouldn't bother with 25.4mm bars anymore.

    Yeah, I'm looking at potentially going from 35 to 31.8 bars. There's a nice set of ENVE's here on RB I'm eyeballing! Cheers mate.
