PRO Discover Medium Flare Handlebar Review As riders are venturing off tarmac, drop-bar bikes and components are adapting. Disc brakes were just the start and a bar with wider flare can provide improved comfort and control on rough terrain. PRO has released the Discover Medium Gravel Handlebar as a great option to add comfort without going full mustache.

PRO Discover Medium Flare Bars Feature:

  • Ergonomic tops with subtle cable grooves
  • AL-6066 alloy
  • 12-degree flare in the drops
  • Di-2 bar plug integration
  • Ideal for long gravel rides
  • Weight: 280 grams (44cm, actual)
  • MSRP: $59.99

The view from above. It’s hard to capture the flare in photos, but it’s noticeable.

Easy on the wallet, easy on any road

Drop bar bikes are experiencing a resurgence and it’s all due to disc brakes and wider tires. With all the fantastic true all-road bikes on the market, it’s time to start being picky about some of the other components, which include drop bars with more flare. It’s pretty amazing, honestly, what a little drop flare can do and in this case, just 12-degrees makes a significant difference.

I swapped out the Zipp Service Course SL-70 Ergo bars in favor of the new PRO Discover Medium Flare and the difference in hand positioning and confidence has been significant. I’m really liking the added flare as it puts my hands into a more natural position for braking and steering precision. Going with my typical 44cm width in this shape didn’t feel too wide at all. In fact, my hand positions have never been this comfortable.

PRO Discover Medium Flare Bars Review

The extra width and flare made for excellent steering control and hand comfort.

Alloy bars are certainly more affordable than carbon bars, but, when done right, they can offer comfortable hand positions and decent compliance. As the ability to draw unique alloy shapes has improved, these bars have improved dramatically. Gone are the days where a straight-gauge round bar is the norm. The PRO Discover Medium Flare Bars show us that curved and flattened tops can definitely add comfort and adding holes near the ends can also accommodate Shimano’s endcap Di2 junction box.

Installing the Discover Medium Flare Bars is straightforward with sufficient markings to keep the bars centered and angled properly. They do lack etched areas where brake hoods attach, but the markings made for an easy symmetrical setup. All riding was done aboard the Niner RLT 9.

Overall shape is great as I can dance around the bars quite easily. And, the short reach and drop makes fitting a breeze while also allowing for positions that don’t require unnecessary drop or extreme reach. That 12-degrees of flare makes for easy times getting into or out of the drops. And, on long rides, the flare makes for more natural hand positions to reduce fatigue.

The shape of the bars is quite nice with comfortable tops that include grooves for cables. Wrapping the bars is straightforward and I’m grateful that these don’t feature internal cable routing for brake and cable lines. With the frequency that I change cockpits, internal cable routing is a buzzkill. But, Di2 routing is a different story and these are prepped for Di2 routing so you can use the bar end junction box for a sleek look.

PRO Discover Medium Flare Bars Review

Curved, ovalized tops and added flare makes these bars stand out.

With such a reasonable price, there’s bound to be compromises. I have ridden many alloy bars that provide shock absorption and comfort beyond what’s typical for the material. Unfortunately, the Discover Medium Flare bars aren’t one of those. Yes, the shape is awesome and they provide superb handling and steering precision, but the ride is very harsh. I would highly-recommend thicker bar tape or a Redshift Sports Shockstop Stem to go along with these bars.

The Good

  • Affordable price point
  • Shape is awesome
  • Medium flare makes long rides comfortable
  • Steering precision
  • Di2 integration

The Bad

  • Stiff material makes for a harsh ride
The Bottom Line: PRO Discover Medium Flare Bars

Swapping bars is typically one of the most satisfying upgrades you can do for your bike. The right curves, sweep and comfort can turn an old bike into something fresh and new. With the PRO Discover Medium Flare Bars, you get an excellent shape for long gravel days. I love the added steering precision and hand comfort afforded by the 12-degrees of flare, but I lament the harsh feel of the 6066 alloy.

But there were some things Ebel couldn’t simulate.

In the first inning of Seager’s first game against fellow major-leaguers since last April 29, the Chicago Cubs had a runner on first with one out and Anthony Rizzo at the plate. The Dodgers shifted their defense. Third baseman Justin Turner moved to the grass in right field, leaving Seager as the only defender on the left side of the infield.

Rizzo hit a ground ball up the middle that second baseman Kiké Hernandez handled. Seager made the long run to second base, taking Hernandez’s throw, pivoting and making a strong, sidearm throw of his own to first base for the double play.

It was the most challenging throw Seager has had to make since undergoing Tommy John surgery last May. And it was followed by – nothing.

“Honestly I didn’t think about it until after,” Seager said. “But that was one of those throws that would really have bothered me before (the elbow surgery). I didn’t really have anything at all. It was kind of nice to keep making different plays from different angles and stuff and keep checking off boxes.

“Kind of no wait, open arm, going the other way. … It’s kind of hard to recreate that (in practice). Nice to be able to do it and come out of it really well.”

Three innings later, Seager bobbled the first ground ball hit his way for an error. By then he had hit a long solo home run off Cubs left-hander Cole Hamels and moved one giant step closer to normalcy.

“I was happy for him to finally play in a game with us,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “In the batter’s box, he looked really good. Nearly homered in that first at-bat (a fly out to the warning track). Homered in that second at-bat on a cut fastball. I thought he looked good in the box. I thought he was seeing it really well.

“Defensively, I liked the way he made that turn. Talking to him earlier, that was the type of play he originally hurt his elbow on. So to have that kind of double play, drop down and make that throw and come out of it feeling good, that was great.”

Seager will head back to the minor-league side of camp Thursday to keep piling up at-bats without playing defense. But Roberts said he expects Seager to be back at shortstop for the Dodgers on Friday.

“Honestly it was just fun. Adrenaline. Excitement and all that,” Seager said of being back with the major-league team Wednesday.

"It was just nice to get back out there."

Corey Seager, AJ Pollock hit home runs but Dodgers tie Cubs THE GAME: Corey Seager hit a home run in his second at-bat against major-league pitching and the Dodgers tied the Chicago Cubs 4-4 on Wednesday night in Mesa, Ariz.

PITCHING REPORT: Dustin May got the start instead of Julio Urias because the Dodgers want Urias to begin acclimating to his likely bullpen role to start the season. May allowed one run on three hits and a walk while striking out three in three innings. … Urias retired the first four batters he faced then gave up a long home run to Anthony Rizzo. He gave up the lead in the seventh inning, in part due to an error by outfielder Ezequiel Carrera.

HITTING REPORT: A.J. Pollock led off the game with a long home run off Cubs left-hander Cole Hamels. Pollock is one of four Dodgers sharing the spring lead with three home runs (also Cody Bellinger, Kiké Hernandez and Joc Pederson). … Facing major-league pitching for the first time since April 29 (due to Tommy John and hip surgeries), Seager flew out to the warning track in his first at-bat against Cubs left-hander Cole Hamels. In his second at-bat, he cleared the fence and sent a solo home run onto the berm in right-center field.

DEFENSE REPORT: Seager mishandled the first ground ball hit to him in his spring debut, bobbling it for an error in the fourth inning. He did make a strong throw to turn a challenging double play with the Dodgers over-shifted to the right side. … With runners at first and third in the fourth inning, Willson Contreras bounced a ground ball back to Dodgers reliever Joe Kelly. Kelly caught the runner from third in a rundown. Turner tagged him out then caught Contreras trying to go to second base with Pollock coming in from center field to cover the base – completing a 1-5-8 double play.

    ANAHEIM — The Ducks vowed to be a better, more aggressive and more competitive team than the last time they faced the Winnipeg Jets. They were better, no question about it, but they still weren’t good enough to beat the Jets, falling 3-0 on Wednesday at Honda Center.

    In the end, the Ducks’ quest for a payback for the 9-3 thumping they received Feb. 2 from the Jets in Winnipeg came up short. They had their chances, but couldn’t score and couldn’t extended their very modest winning streak to three consecutive games.

    The only score-settling the Ducks could manage were a couple of scraps involving Corey Perry in the second period of a game that featured some chippy play from both teams. It was understandable from the Ducks’ perspective and the Jets were willing dance partners.

    “These guys have a lot of pride, a lot of character,” assistant coach Marty Wilford said of the Ducks. “They’re competitive players. Obviously, we got embarrassed there last time and we talked about that before the game. Unfortunately, it didn’t come out the way we wanted.”

    The Ducks didn’t record a shot for almost the first 10 minutes of the first period, but then got three in about 15 seconds, including two from rookie Max Jones. The Jets had only three themselves and didn’t have a whole lot going on until late in the period.

    Mark Scheifele gave the Jets a 1-0 lead with a power-play goal at 15:56 that came as a result of a perimeter shot from Jacob Trouba that sailed wide of John Gibson’s net, with the puck ricocheting off the stick of Kyle Connor and directly to Scheifele.

    Tracking the puck’s many unexpected bounces proved impossible for Gibson.

    The period ended with the Ducks trailing by only a goal, a far better position for them than in their last meeting with the Jets, which featured six first-period goals for Winnipeg. Gibson didn’t make it to the end of the period, relieved by Chad Johnson after only 17:41.

    After a scoreless second period Wednesday, Connor and Nikolaj Ehlers extended Winnipeg’s lead to 3-0 with goals in the early minutes of the third. The only question by then was whether goalie Connor Hellebuyck could complete a shutout, which he did, his first of 2018-19.

    The Ducks outshot the Jets 29-23.

    “We did a good job of getting shots through,” Ducks right wing Jakob Silfverberg said. “As always, when you don’t score goals, you’ve got to get those second opportunities. I wouldn’t say we didn’t battle hard enough, but they did a good job of boxing out. You try to get in there, but it’s tough.

    “Their ‘D’ didn’t let us get in there.”

    The Ducks of Wednesday looked like a different team than the punchless club that was knocked down and out in an embarrassing showing that was part of a stretch of games that resulted in losses in 19 of 21 games and prompted the firing of Randy Carlyle as coach Feb. 10.

    For one thing, they punched back.

    Perry fought Winnipeg’s Joe Morrow in a second-period bout that ended with Perry ripping Morrow’s helmet off. Perry was poised to deliver a right hand to Morrow’s head as they fell to the ice. Perry then tangled with Ben Chiarot later in the second, with both receiving roughing minors.

    Perry made a pest of himself in front of both nets and got under the Jets’ skin early and often. It was a dramatic turnaround from the lifeless performance the Ducks put on in the previous meeting, when Perry made his season debut after sitting out for 51 games after knee surgery in September.

    “I thought we came out and played well,” Ducks defenseman Josh Manson said. “I thought we commanded five-on-five. I think we got into a little bit of penalty trouble and they scored that one in the first period. Other than that, I didn’t think our game was that bad.”

    Instead of playing on their heels and accepting their fate, the Ducks did something about it. Their passing was crisper and their breakouts from the own zone were sharper. They even controlled the play for extended stretches. They couldn’t make up their early deficit, though.

    Before the game, the Ducks recalled Andy Welinski from the San Diego Gulls of the AHL to replace fellow rookie defenseman Jacob Larsson, who suffered a lower-body injury. Welinski skated in Larsson’s spot in a pair with Cam Fowler.

    Tyler Skaggs shakes off rough first inning in Angels’ loss to Indians THE GAME: The Angels lost 4-2 to the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday night in Goodyear, Ariz.

    PITCHING REPORT: Left-hander Tyler Skaggs returned to a Cactus League game for the first time since he was scratched from a start because of forearm fatigue from working on a new pitch. Skaggs gave up three runs in a 19-pitch first, but then he retired 12 of 13 batters in the next four innings on 41 pitches. “The first inning was a little shaky, kind of knocking the cobwebs off. I hung a few pitches, but other than that, I thought I shut it down after that.” Skaggs will have one more start before the regular season, most likely against the Dodgers in the Freeway Series, and he’s expecting to get up to about 80 pitches. … Right-hander Hansel Robles gave up a run on two hits while recording just two outs. Robles has allowed five earned runs in 6-1/3 innings this spring. … Right-hander Ty Buttrey worked around a double in a scoreless inning. … Right-hander Justin Anderson pitched a perfect inning.

    HITTING REPORT: Justin Upton was hit by a pitch and he struck out three times, starting at DH in his second Cactus League game of the spring. Upton, who had missed most of the spring because of knee tendinitis, had homered and walked in his spring debut a night earlier. … Brennan Lund drove in two runs with a triple.

    DEFENSE REPORT: Third baseman Taylor Ward, who has made six errors already this spring, was saved another one when a ball deflected off his glove and to shortstop Wilfredo Tovar. Tovar got rid of the ball quickly enough to get an out at first. … First baseman Justin Bour came too far off the bag when Skaggs threw a pickoff and Trayce Thompson, who would have been out to end the inning, was able to get back safely. Thompson then scored on a double. Skaggs said Bour had not played first yet with him on the mound, so he wasn’t prepared for his move. Bour later made a nice pick of a throw in the dirt, completing a double play.

    UP NEXT: Angels (RHP Ty Buttrey) vs. Diamondbacks (RHP Merrill Kelly), Thursday, 1 p.m. PT, Salt River Fields, Scottsdale, Ariz.

    LA County health officials ID 2nd measles case involving LAX Passenger LOS ANGELES – Los Angeles County health officials said Wednesday they have confirmed another case of measles involving a passenger who arrived aboard a flight at Los Angeles International Airport.

    The newest case was a passenger on United Airlines flight 240 that arrived at the airport on March 5 and may have been in the area of Gate 76A at Terminal 7 between 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

    The person also visited an Enterprise Rent-A-Car location at 1719 Wilshire Blvd. in Santa Monica the following day sometime between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m.

    Health officials previously reported a measles case involving a China Eastern passenger who arrived at LAX on Feb. 21. The two cases are not believed to be related.

    Related links

    The county Department of Public Health urged anyone who may have been in areas visited by the latest patient to contact their doctor if they develop symptoms of possible measles. Health officials said common symptoms include fever, cough, runny nose, red eyes and a rash.

    As in the previous case, people who were aboard the patient’s flight have been notified separately. Health officials said anyone who have been free of symptoms for more than 20 days of exposure are no longer considered at risk.

    “We may continue to see measles cases that travel through L.A. County, so it is important if you or someone you know has been exposed to or has measles to contact your healthcare provider right away before going in,” said Dr. Muntu Davis, the county’s health officer.

    In the earlier case, health officials said the patient arrived at the LAX Tom Bradley International Terminal, gate 133, at 9 a.m. Feb. 21 aboard China Eastern flight 583. The passenger had a layover at Delta Air Lines gate 32 in Terminal 3, eventually leaving aboard flight DL 5705.

    LAPD arrests man in sex crimes dating to the 90s in Pacoima; 5 girls were victimized SAN FERNANDO  — A 56-year-old man pleaded not guilty Wednesday to sex-related charges involving four girls in the 1990s and a fifth in 2012.

    Felipe Ceja Bautista was charged March 13 with two felony counts of continuous sexual abuse, along with one felony count of committing a lewd act on a child and three felony counts of lewd acts on a child 14 or 15.

    The criminal complaint alleges that all but one the crimes occurred between January 1990 and December 1999, while the remaining crime allegedly occurred in November 2012.

    Bautista, who was arrested Feb. 14 by detectives with the Los Angeles Police Department’s Mission Division, was ordered held in lieu of $2.1 million bail while awaiting his next court appearance.

    Police believe the crimes began in the early 1990s while Bautista was living in Pacoima and that he may have victimized children from different families, according to an LAPD statement.

    The charges stem from an extensive investigation after the first alleged victim came forward, according to police, who asked anyone with information about the case to call Mission Area Sex Assault Detective Kittle at (818) 838-9810 or Detective Santa at (818) 838-9800.
