    I only spent about 15 minutes with the new handle, so you're welcome to
    take my opinion with a grain of salt.

    I had high hopes. I was excited about the adjustability, and the
    ability of using different bar ends, and not putting added forces on
    the seat/seatpost interface.

    ....but I don't like it at all. I thought I'd try it a little lower
    than i run the T7, but my knees rubbed on the sides and banged the
    T-bar. I had to raise it up to about the same position as the T7 for it
    to be usable, which is all the way up, and the rubbing was still too
    annoying. I think the dual-bar design is simply flawed. Adjustability
    is great, but you really have to crank everything down to get it to
    stay in place. I'm seems significantly lighter than the T7 but less so
    once you figure in the addition of a rail adapter. (which is optional,
    just not for me).

    For me, this needs narrower and longer. In its current form, I can't
    use it.

    Mine arrived today, after also spending 15 minutes with it I agree that
    it needs to be narrower. Length is fine however (for me) but then again
    I have only tried it in the highest position and in that configuration
    it rubs against my thighs.

    I'll be playing around more over the weekend but my impression so far
    is :/

    I think simplicity is best in this case. A single round, tubular
    telescoping main bar (Aluminum) attached to, and extending from the
    seatpost, (like the coker bar) to vary outward length (since we all
    have different sized arms lol!)

    So there should be two additional adjustments available; up/down
    adjustment, like, or similar to what the coker bar has now, and bar end
    adjustment. The dual bars are just not necessary IMO. Seems like a
    pretty ideal and simple set up.
