    Lightest 31.8 flat bar with 10+ degree sweep

    I have a lightweight (~150g) flat bar on my epic but the 8 degree sweep isn't enough for me to have a neutral wrist position, so I'm looking for something at least as light to replace it with. 31.8mm clamp diameter,with 10+degree sweep, and around 660mm width. I'm not finding much, with Salsa being the top option I've found:

    Pro-moto 1 carbon:

    660mm width
    145 grams at full width for 11-degree
    156 grams at full width for 17-degree
    Riding: '91 Carbon Epic Stumpjumper w/1" Slicks and a Rack on the Back

    I had a similar issue and decided to go for the Syntace Vector 12 degree.

    A bit heavier (depending on the width you cut them), but ow so comfortable.

    .

    Don't want to sound like a dewsche, but is there a chance that you could move your saddle a couple of mm forward, and maybe a couple of mm lower?

    I only say that because I am constantly fiddling with my setup and every once in a while (actually pretty rarely) I find an adjustment that sticks.
