    looking for lite weight handle bar

    Converting back to flat bar. I am looking for a lite weight handlebar/stem combo for xc racing. Carbon Fiber. Do you all know of a good combo like that. I am sure there are plenty out there. Just tell me which one you think is good and has worked for you.

    Hey a good light flat xc bar can be found in the product ranges of:
    - FSA
    - Easton

    Plenty of other brands but you can usually find these products easily and cheaply too.

    Salsa Pro Moto Carbon Flat bar

    A wooping 660mm but can be cut and compatable with barend. I cut mine down to 560mm and I think it was around 116gms.

    I have eastons ec90s (99gs) and FSA K Force (125g). They both work fine, but the FSAs are wider.
    Bikes are my time machines.

    Moots Ti-beam

    Sorry for the delay in reply. I run a Moot's Ti-beam, not really light, 110mm x 6 deg is 176gms with Ti faceplate bolts. But it is nice :-)
