Is it the demographic of the readers? I too am of the age to have accumulated several injuries over the years that contribute to numb hands/feet. I have the SQ Lab 16 deg bars and the Ergon GA3 on my mtb bike. They worked well until the most recent injury of sprained/jammed wrists and fractured radial head on my right arm 2 years ago. Flat bars with any grips gave me such pain during recovery, I bought a gravel bike so I could continue riding. Curvy bars with slanted hoods, drops and flats provided enough variety to keep the numbness and pain away. The change of seasons is going to get me away from riding 1.7" tires on my favorite trails back to my regular mountain bike. No doubt in my mind I wouldn't be able to handle the stock 9 deg sweep, lock on grip setup.
