    Ibis Hi-Fi & Lo-Fi Carbon bars?

    Does anyone have any pics on these or know if they're for sale on their own? (Hans?)

    Fiddling with the Ripley build kit comparisons and noticed these new carbon bars (on all kits except SLX and X9). Would love to know more about them.

    Take a look at Bike magazine. The Ripley review has the Ibis bars.

    I emailed Ibis yesterday, and got the answer that the bars would be in the store in the coming weeks.

    We're shipping the riser bar currently in our kits and expecting to have the flat bars coming in within 6 weeks.

    As we build some inventory we will add them to our web store and make them available through our dealers and distributors. That will happen in the next 2-3 months.

    The bars blow away all the strength tests and are 740mm wide with a 9 degree back and 5 degree up sweep. The rise bar is about 200g and the flat is about 210 g. You would expect the flat bar to use less material, but to achieve the same strength the flat bar actually needs a bit more material. It's kind of counter intuitive, but the stress on the flat bar is a little more concentrated than it is on the riser bar.

    They are reinforced on the ends so they can withstand impacts and even clamping from bar ends. We used very subtle black graphics so they will work with any color scheme and not clash. You could even put them on another brand of bike and nothing bad would happen ; )

    Hans,

    Will the flat bars be available in shorter widths? 560mm is what I like running.

    They can be cut down and have markings on them to help with that. The marking go down to 680 mm width and you would lose the reinforced end for clamping bar ends. I;m not sure how narrow you could cut them and still have room for the levers and grips. We made these bars mostly, because there were not many wide carbon bars available at the time, especially flat ones.

    Just picked one up from my LBS yesterday. Very stealth. Black logos only appear when they catch the light. Weighed in at 224g. Almost 50g heavier than the Haven Carbon bars they are replacing, but they are MUCH stiffer and wider. Feels about as stiff as the Havoc Carbon bars on my other bike. A downside for me, but an upside for bar end users, is that the carbon is so thick at the ends that my Deity end plugs won't fit. I'll have to find some push in plugs for now.

    Another cool feature is that if you mount the bars flat then you get an 11.5 deg backsweep, (something I've wanted to try for a while) but if you rotate them 26 deg up then you get a 9 deg backsweep and a 5 deg upsweep which is what I'm used to riding. Matched it to a flipped 70mm Ibis stem to get the bar even lower. The stem weighed in at 112g, 32g lighter than the Haven stem.

    I'll have more of a ride review after I take them out tomorrow, but so far I'm digging 'em.

    Ibis bar and stem

    I am really liking the Ibis bar and stem and hope the carbon bar is in the store soon as I want one for another bike.
