I agree with Josh - Save another $100 or so and get a Werksan or Eleiko. A company called Malgrem (sp?) is doing the Chapman bars now, although I don't know their contact info. The Pendlay elite bar feels good (relatively light knurling, similar to the Chapman) - be forewarned though that bumpers fit a little loose on it (I'm guessing to be more forgiving of cheap bumpers).
