    light bars with more sweep

    Are there any light bars available with 8 or 9 degrees of sweep?
    I don't really need risers, and salsa and titec versions are kind of heavy.
    Carbon or ti preferred, but I would consider the right aluminum bar.

    Syntace Duraflite bars have your desired sweep. some come even in 12 degrees. these bars always get the highest numbers in comparison tets. they surpass strenght tests with ease...

    guten morgen!
    i will have to wait a couple of hours 'cause me belly will hinder me from folding me over my bike
    i ate MUCH TOO MUCH yesterday. what a pain. but weather is awesome today with all the snow melted and max. 9 degrees C are announced! you bet i will go for a ride. i already missed Frischy's "christmas ride" yesterday so i definitely will have some riding time today to start "digesting" the hyper-meal from yesterday.

    I have two Salsa MotoAce Quatruple Butted 11 bars in use which I love. 190g in 660mm. Good chance to try wider bars once. I run one at full length with Singletrack Solutions Barends, and the other cut to 630mm with normal barends. Yes, even for geared use, wide bars are great. More comfort, more power, impossible to notice weight difference.
    Unfortunately, the 140g Carbon version of this bar only comes in 5, a shame really. I'd love to have one for a weightweenie racer bike.

    It should be available here. Contact Syntace USA and I'm sure they'll let you know where to get one.
