    Thomson carbon handlebars

    Where are they?
    I want a set but can't find anyone that has them in stock
    Just bought a x4 stem and I'd like to get the bars to match
    They were released in October and there are plenty of reviews for them but where the f are they?

    210 grams for the riser a lil less for the flat
    As far as carbon bars go they aren't the lightest but they are Thomson so I won't worry about my heavy ass breaking them

    looks like a decent alternative to my carbon haven. i think the extra length is perfect

    I ordered a set of the carbon AM bars and a 70mm Thomson stem last night. I've been running Answer Pro Taper AM carbon bars and a Race Face Turbine stem. I'll report back on how I like the bars as they have less sweep and less rise than the Answers (which I like a ton).

    Subscribing. I'll be interested on the feedbacks as well. Been considering these but they've been out-of-stock until pointed out in this thread otherwise.

    Mine will be here Wednesday I can't wait
    Already got the 90mm x4 stem and it is beyond nice the fit and finish is amazing
    I never realized how much flex I was getting from my old lightweight stem until I got this baby

    Here's mine. Cut them down to 710mm since photo was taken. Stock of 730mm too wide for me. The quality is top notch even inside the bars where it's all smooth vs raw layed up carbon.

    Rode them up and down San Juan Trail. Great balance up the 7 miles 3000 feet climb. Great handling on the way down.

    Got a riser coming in on Friday and it is the final piece to my ASR5 build besides the wheel set which I'm going to thrash on for awhile before replacing. All Thomson cockpit> sweet! The bars look awesome.

    How are you guys liking your Thomson bars up to this point? Are you still riding them? I'm looking for a wider bar to replace my Niner RDO bar that I regrettably cut down.

    I still have the same bars pictured on my giant, but they are now on my 5.7 and I still love them. Have no need to replace them and I actually never think about them which for me and my upgraditis is quite an accomplishment
