    Easton Haven component group

    I'm seeing so much on the Easton Haven carbon wheels from Sea Otter, but I've also seen a few pictures of new handlebars, stems and posts. Does anyone have more information? I'm not planning on getting the carbon wheels any time soon, but maybe the other parts. Here is a page I found from singletrackworld.com. I'm hoping for prices and what not. I'm excited about the Haven bars. I've been considering the Easton Monkeylite DH bars for my Tracer, but if these bars are just as wide, and stronger, but in a lower rise they would be perfect.

    What's putting me off a bit is the lack of info on a date for the expected release to the public.

    The 55mm stem is just what I was looking for and there aren't that many options around that lenght.
    (I'm currently riding a 45mm Syntace Super Force, but upon moving to a new frame I'm feeling a 55mm one would fit me better, without being too long)

    I'm really interested in this stuff too. I wish they would let us know when we can expect this stuff to hit. The bars and stem are just what I'm looking for.

    Aargh... I was just searching, sure somebody here would know when the handlebars will be released. Seemes like a pretty good weight for a sturdy bar.

    I've done a bit of digging with no results. Luckily my new frame has been delayed, so I don't have an urgent need yet.

    There's a new standard? Why, oh why...
    According to singlecrown.com it will still be 31.8mm and released in the fall (whatever that means).

    After trying to get a hold of the official date for the Haven line to become available to the public (through e-mails to Easton) and not getting one, I have to confess that I've moved on.
    Maybe when it gets out in the fall™ I'll take a look again.

    I did a quick search as I don't recall seeing anything that noted that. I can't find anything that notes clamp size for the stem or bar diameter.

    Yes the Easton Haven carbon is said to weigh 170 grams at a length of 711mm, and a price of around $150 msrp. The RaceFace bar is said to weigh 220 grams at a length of 725mm, and a retail price around $130. That's a big weight difference for a relatively small price difference and length difference. A tenth of a pound savings for $20 seems pretty reasonable to me, as long as I didn't need the extra 7mm of bar on each side of the stem. Truth be told, I'd be stoked to have either one. Until the Haven components are actually released to the public, it's all just speculation really.

    The answer pro taper carbon bar looks like another good option, and they come in more rise options

    River City Bicycles in PDX had the aluminum ones a couple of days ago when I was in, so I assume they are definitely available out there.

    Remember there is also 'Enve Composites' who make 3 carbon risers:

    800mm wide, 225g, 31.8
    700mm wide, 175g, 31.8

    The 800's are very light, escpecially considering you would cut a good 50mm minimum off them on an AM rig. Available Jan 1, 2011 according to their website.

    More details:

    The make 2 carbon risers and a flat bar. Seems like quality stuff. There seem to be only at roadie bike shops here in the Seattle area...that worries me a bit for DH or even AM components.
