    i've not seen them on ebay or in stores (not that i've asked). if you're lucky, your local Giant Distributor would have some as spare parts.

    not flexy that i can tell. i suspect they are more bling than anything. i've not weighed them, but i doubt they are significantly ligher than the alloy versions. and in fact some carbon components are heavier than quality alloy equivalents if they need to be reinforced (ie: add more carbon) to sustain forces (eg: i have a Giant carbon stem on one bike but it's no weightweenie compared with the top alloy ones around; and ain't cheap!).

    they smell of 'expensive' to me too.
