    oh....the hussefelt is made for a 31.8mm
    and the sette is made for 25.4mm

    i haven't gotten a riser bar yet...so this is kinda needed for me to make that decision as well (possibly a future thread for that too...lol)

    Go with the Sette stumpy and get some DMR cr-mo wingbars. Those bars are kickass! I have them.

    I'd go for the Sette because IMO 31.8mm isn't as good for DJ. Reason being it's stiffer. From what I've noticed 25.4 gets rid of small vibratioons better. Just what I've noticed.

    For bars, I'm liking my Easton EA30s. Cheap, decently light, and strong enough for me.

    I would really suggest the hussefelt. I've been riding them for a couple of years now. do the job just fine, havent stripped one out or anything, good length, fairly light.

    I've been useing 31.8 for park and urban. the 25 was fine for a while, but after being on my other bikes, I really couldent get used to the flex of other bars.

    Get a used diabolus from ebay. Best H-core stem ever.

    Hussefelt has served me right for the last two years, and it's going on my next build also.

    woah . . . you consider that heavy? Maybe it's twice as much as some aluminum hussefelts, but a .75 lb difference is nothing. You barely notice bar weight anyway . . .

    Those .75# differences add up. Call me a weight weenie but I think about weight on every part of the bike. Doesn't mean I run light stuff everywhere (I mean I use Profiles because for me the weight's worth it) but I think heavy bars aren't neccessary. My mindset keeps my bikes pretty light.

    Well, if you keep everything so light, adding an extra .75 lbs won't make a difference.
