    Carbon bars - Niner RDO flat top?

    Also posted in the Niner forum but not much going on there...

    I'm looking for a wide carbon bar that is excellent at absorbing vibrations (riding rigid).

    Considering the Niner RDO, but some say it is quite harsh on the hands for a carbon bar.

    However, I see they have recently reduced the weight by 20g now, so I'm wondering if it's now more compliant?

    It's either the RDO, or the Easton Haven, Thompson or Truvative Noir T30. Any opinions on the vibration absorbing properties of these carbon bars?

    I'm on a RIP - so there will be a difference in feel. I went from a set of Salsa aluminum to the Niner carbons last year. I felt the difference immediately - I love them. But, all the bars you mentioned are good... Get the set that feels right (bend, rise) for you.
