    Strong flat bar with bar ends

    I currently have an FSA kforce carbon flat bar and have some bar ends on them. however, the bar only allows max 3.9nm of torque on the ends and i sometimes get slippage on the bar ends when using them up hills.

    any suggestions for a strong (yet still within reason weight wise) and reliable flat bar (need oversize)? i'd like at least 600mm of width.

    Have you tried "Carbon Assembly Paste"
    Duct tape iz like teh Force. It has a Lite side and a Dark side and it holdz the Universe together.

    I ride a Syntace Duraflite Carbon on one of my bikes and have bar ends on it. 630 mm and super light. I highly recommend Syntace. The only issue is you must order from European dealer since there is no longer a US based distributer.

    I've found that Race Face Next SLs are pretty durable and reasonably lightweight. Bar end reinforcement plugs will let you snug the bar ends down a little tighter as well.
