I've paid a high price for front-end equipment failure in the past so I replace my fork and handlebar frequently for peace of mind. The price of carbon bars would prevent me from being able to do that so I go aluminum.
That must be quite the story?
Nothing unusual, just the classic "boy breaks fork, boy meets ground, boy crushes vertebrae" story. Also a few snapped handlebar tales from when everything was just far too light during the mid-nineties.
