    Carbon Handlebar- 620mm+
    I'm looking for a carbon bar that is over 620mm. I have found that I prefer this size with around 11* of sweep.

    Other then Salsa, does anybody make these? Seems like most carbon bars come in the 520-560mm range. I have tried one of the Easton bars in this lenght, but it is just to short on the front of my rigid bike.

    Are you after a flat bar, a low rise or a riser bar?

    Sorry, flat bar in 25.4 would be optimal. No bar ends will be used.

    I was hoping for something lighter then the DH Monkeylite bar.

    As far as i know (cause i looked) there are no flat bars over 600mm in 25.4mm

    The best i found was the Easton EC70 riser - 25.4x660mm with "lo - rise" or 1" rise - fits me perfectly. Wouldn't mind a flat bar in 660mm though....

    Salsa makes a flat carbon bar at 660mm and Edge Composites makes one at 610mm. Both of these are available in 25.4mm clamp size.

    I was just searching for lighter alternatives. I have heard that the Salsa bar is pretty stout and I was hoping to find something a bit more forgiving. Plus I wanted to loose a bit more weight over my current Salsa (non-carbon) bar.

    Syntace makes their 31.8 carbon flat bar in 630mm 9* sweep, mine came in under weight at 134 grams.

    Sounds like the Salsa is your bar, you can trim the ends to your desired length.

    i'm using an old (CT2) monkeylite low rise at 660mm, 25.4 clamp, weighing in at 142g. i don't know if you'd be able to find one though. the jenson link above is the newer version that seems a tad heavier, but is probably stronger (CNT)

    Outside of the Salsa ProMoto carbon flat bar....

    If you'd be willing to get a new stem (31.8mm), Syntace has a nice flat carbon bar that comes in 2 lengths 600mm and 630mm found here.

    the best bar ever, Salsa ProMoto carbon flat bar. 11 degrees and 660mm! You can cut them down if you want. I ride them 630 now, but hate it for racing. Go back to 660 soon. Like Kabush:P, what's he riding, 720mm orso? :P

    My Salsa Pro Moto Carbon weighs about 135 grams (uncut) in 25.4 and is much more forgiving than an Easton Monkey Lite XC.
    I m selling it but i'm french, sorry...
