    Great Carbon bar!

    I have a Trek Rumblefish Elite that ill be replacing the handlebar on soon.

    Can you guys recommend a 31.8 or is it 31.6...anyway, that has a great carbon fiber look (u can see the fibers, lite weight and strong?

    Thanks,

    I have Enve's DH riser. Looks pretty sweet, but you can't see the fiber.

    FSA - I can see the fiber and their colours can match. Not sure if its the lightest but certainly strong enough for safety. With the forces in racing its astute to get something strong & reliable.

    I'm really liking my crank bro's cobalt11 bars. Nice looking and visible carbon. Actually never considered them till a local shop gave me a really good price. I'd definitely buy them again.

    @drz400: i didnt think you could see the fiber in the Crank Brothers? Seems a little silly of me, but there is something about seeing the carbon fiber that looks really great!

    Xlite Carbon Bar 15mm & 40mm Rise 31.8 :: Loaded USA

    Probably not the perfect bar for a Rumblefish, but you can sure see the carbon weave and it isn't covered with goofy graphics.

    Light bicycle is getting good reviews on their cf products. Looks like they are currently out of bars for mountain bike but if you email them they will get you on a waiting list. Prices are real low and quality seems to be good from reviews I have read. there is a big thread on their cf mountain bike rims.

    I have a Ritchey Carbon Low Rize 660 wide with a 15mm rise... Might be a tad narrow for some (I know a bunch of people are going WIDE now) but I kinda like a slightly twitchy ride. Great dampening & light weight especially when matched with ESI Racers Edge Grips. These things are beautiful too, I find myself just staring at them sometimes.

    Answer ProTaper AM 720 Carbon. It has the big weave (12k) type finish.

    Love those Ritchey bars! The finish in person is much nicer. I have a friend with one that took a brutal spill, multiple broken bones and the bar didn't crack, I was surprised.

    Those Ritchey bars look really good. I can't find them in wider than 660, though. I am looking for something more like 700s. I think my buddy has some easton haven that look really sweet, and another friend has some ENVE & ENVE stem, wow...

    I bought a brand new Shimano XCR pro carbon riser bar thinking I had a 660 width bar on my bike, and they're too narrow...past the return period now, so they're in the classifieds for 1/2 what they sell on nashbar for, and still brand new/never mounted. Oops...don't check before you impulse buy, that would make way too much sense huh?

    I have two carbon bars.

    This FSA that are about 680mm on my superfly


    And this Easton Haven on my fat bike, this are really wide at 710mm but provide great leverage to steer the big old tires..


    I got the FSA first and they make my get the Haven's do to the excellent feel they provide

    High visibility carbon

    Way highly visible. LP Composites if you want to google them. Their downhill riser is 27" and they have some others that might be that wide, I haven't checked them all out. I don't know about the weight being light, however.
