    Stem and handlebar combo

    Ok, got over my issues with carbon bars. Thinking of getting the Easton EC70 bar (http://www.eastonbike.com/COMPONENTS/bar.ec70.html) and putting my ST-lites barends on it. For the stem I was thinking the Easton EA70 (http://www.eastonbike.com/COMPONENTS...70_forged.html) however I noticed it's only two bolts I was under the impression for a carbon bar you need to have a four bolt stem to distribute the weight better on the carbon bar? Anyone got a better setup/pair combo?

    Also I am around 187 pounds, would I be too heavy for this setup?

    Try a Synatce F99/Duraflite Carbon Combo...

    The F99 comes in about 106g for the 105 size and the Duraflite Cabon bar in 119-120g for a 580mm bar.
    If you need a stronger stem, then the F139 (132g 105mm).



    The Easton bar is also a nice bar that will match up nice with a Syntace stem.
    I don't care for easton stems as they are heavier and 2 bolt for most.

    FSA also makes a nice combo that you might wnat to check out:
