    Carbon bars do not belong on a SS anyway so now you can swap em out.

    I've run them for years. And so have many people I know. On rigid bikes.

    After breaking both carbon and aluminum bars while riding I can tell you that I'll never use aluminum again. Carbon cracks and makes noises to let you know what going on-giving you time to react. Aluminum fails catastrophically. And then stuff like this happens: http://single-track-mind.xanga.com/h...%3a59%3a59.999
