    Carbon 745mm - 750mm bars with 38" rise?

    I'm still running my Sunline V1 745mm 38mm rise bars and love the fit. I would love to go to a carbon bar but does anyone make them similar to these specs on width and rise?

    crank brothers iodine 11 is 740 wide with a 30mm rise. One of the higher rise carbon bars out there.

    I've been looking into this too, I'd love to get a 35 - 40 mm rise carbon wider bar (over 750). Easton once made a 40mm x 710 bar (got one in my parts box), it'd be nice to see a wider version. There is definitely a glut of 20mm rise wide carbon bars, it would be great to see at least one company branch out, especially with all the short head tubes these days. If you are over 6'2" the low bars don't cut it on some bikes.
    Nice to see CB is getting close, but 740 is just a bit too narrow. Plus I personally don't trust anything they make except for pocket bike tools.

    Joystick is coming out with a 800mm wide 20mm rise bar at 220ish grams soon:

    Wide 20 mm rise bars aren't too hard to find, it's 35+ mm rise that would be nice. I've got RF SixC's on my Endorphin, and I'd like to avoid a giant stack of spacers to get into a better position (plus I'm out of space on my current steerer).

    woah, way to much to drink here. For some reason I thought you were looking for something else.

    My thoughts exactly. I only want to go up from 745 Sunlines as I run a 50mm stem and longer top tube. I really don't have much confidence in the crank brothers bars. To many people I know have had their other stuff fail.
