    anyone try a eXotic carbon fiber handlebar?

    So I picked up one of these from carboncycles.cc . 750mm length with a 9 degree sweep and 4 degree rise. Super light at 157 grams.. I think it's too light for either of my RIP's Just wanted to see if any fellow Niner owners are running one and how has it been holding up?

    I bought two of them. One for each of my JET's. So far (knock on wood) they've been great. Perfect width and sweep for me.

    If you don't mind me asking - how heavy are you? I know that's normally a question saved for seatpost recommendations, but I figure at times a lot of my torso weight is on the ends of bars, and I'd like to know of more heavier dudes running these bars before I decide between them or the ubiquitous Renthals.
