    Wide Flat Bar Options

    I am looking for a wide (710+ mm) carbon bar. I've seen the new Thomson bar and the Niner bar. They both seem nice. Are there any other options I may be overlooking?

    That's a good options as I've had Syntace bars before, but I should have qualified my in my OP that I am looking for a carbon bar. I believe this syntace bar is aluminum

    This must be fairly new. I just checked out the niner site, and that bar looks really nice. Pricey....but nice. I ordered a Thomson 2 days ago, and now I'm second guessing that decision.

    Could you use the Syntace Vector carbon high5/low5 and raceface next flatbar (w 1/4" rise) like the ritchey 2X handlebars. That is, turn them around and get either 5mm drop or rise? Or does the next for instance have some upwards bend?

    Have had a Ritchey 2x aluminum bar and I think it was great but for my dream build I will go to carbon and ritchey does not offer anything like this in carbon over 710mm.

    I have the thomson waiting to be installed and ridden. Seems like really solid construction and I like the less aggressive back sweep of 6˚ vs 9˚ for the Niner. 730mm is probably a good width for me coming from the 710mm Niner alloy. 780 is too much and so is $200 a pop. Got the Thomson for $120 from Wiggle UK.

    The thomson also has the +/- 5mm drop option.

    The Niner carbon bar has the same flip-able design.

    I like the carbon pattern in my Niner bar over the cosmetic carbon weave on my old Race Face Next bar.
