    Ritchey Superlogic carbon bars vs. WCS carbon

    I'm running the WCS carbon right now and I like it a lot, but I need another one and now I see there's the Superlogic carbon on Ebay for $120 with a claimed weight of 145g for 31.8 660mm.

    Anyone using this bar? Comments? Comparison to WCS carbon?

    I'm running that bar in the low rise -15mm,however it came in at 160 grams.Same crap as the Easton stuff, weights all over the map.On elite top of line products I could except 2-3 % variance, but 10-15 % on all this Ritchey & Easton stuff is a joke.I believe that bar retails for around $350.00 cnd.Besides the weight I'm happy with the bar,nice width & the rough sandpaper like finish for the stem clamping area is great.I torqued Ti bolts with antiseize at 3 Nm & the bar doesn't move & the bolts stay put.

    What does that have to do with a comparison between WCS carbon flat bars and Super Logic carbon flat bars?

    As far as I can tell, the Superlogic bar is lighter because it doesn't have the metal inserts.

    Actually I was talking about the low-rise (15mm) bars, but I'm sure the same difference applies to the flat ones.

    Not much weight difference... 10g and the WCS Carbon weave looks much better than the UD look of the SuperLogic

    SuperLogic Flat Carbon 580mm 31.8mm 5 125g UD Carbon 169.95

    WCS Mtn Flat Carbon 5D, O/S 31.8 x 580mm, Blk 580mm 31.8mm 5 135g Carbon 139.95
