In choosing a bar for Project 9er we were looking for a flat bar with plenty of sweep. The Noir T30 Carbon bar has been getting a good wrap amongst riders, especially 29er pilots, for its generous sweep leading to comfortable hand positioning. Its a flat bar which also helps in keeping the front end of the low, something which is particularly needed more now with tall 9ers.

At the other end it is pretty standard fair with Shimano's latest XT pedals. While there is nothing quite like the XTR version, the XT variant gets very close. Solid engagement and a firm feel, out of the box they just feel right.
