I have a theory about your mysterious comfort, Andrew. > Whether it's the bend, or the internal taper, or the 31.8mm clamp, or a combination of all three items and some magical metallurgy, the ProTaper bar is surprisingly comfortable. The extra rise means the bar is a longer tube than the same width in a lower rise. This means more bar to flex, and a lower resonant frequency (an open tube has a resonant frequency of a wavelength twice the tubes length, see, education is useful!)
