    Looking for legit carbon riser bar <$130

    weight <200g
    length 700-720mm or so
    rise maybe 15-20mm
    backsweep 9 degrees or so
    bar-end compatibility a plus

    Two candidates I found so far were:
    Race Face Next
    Bontrager RXL

    Any others?

    I don't want some China knock-off brand, but I figure there must be some Taiwanese company that knows what they are doing that can offer one for a lot cheaper.

    I was at Performance Bike and saw their house brand carbon bar. (Made in Taiwan) Aside from being too heavy, the inside of the bar looked kind of crummy and sloppy.
    There was a Bontrager RXL at the Trek dealer, and it was rather nice looking. Too bad Bontrager stuff never seems to go on sale.

    edit: 31.8 clamp

    Whisky has a 25mm rise. They are about $130 and should be 200ish grams when cut to your desired width (the are 258g at 840mm) 5* up 9* back.

    Syntace has a carbon bar for $130?


    The Ibis Hi Fi is $120 but weighs in at 225gr: https://www.competitivecyclist.com/i...rbon-handlebar

    I'm pretty sure most of the brand name carbon bars will be made in Taiwan...if not...it'll be reflected in the price.

    I found mine eBay for that. Maybe I got lucky. It was also the 12 degree back and up.
