    best riser bar for SSing & stem

    my stock SS came with an easton ea30 bar & ea50 stem. Good but a bit on the heavy side. What would you recommend as an upgrade.for this combo to loose weight but retain strength........
    thanks in advance Conrad

    Ya, the only reason IMO to swap stem/bar is for a different length/rise stem or different width/shape bar. Of all the places to save weight, it will be most felt in the wheels/tires.

    btw, carpet fiber? lol

    Like Carbon fiber but with a deep shag finish for extra pimp value

    hve done the wheels & tires thing already

    Yip gone to 1503g wheel set, folding tires maxxis 0.45mm tubes...might to tubless yet

    so bars are next on the list swapping forks is a bit costly for the SS fun thing..lol
