i am looking to buy a new pair of handle bars for my road bike. I race "A" grade and have a nice GIANT aluminium & carbonfibre bike and was wondering what type of bars you guy recomend.
How much are you looking at spending? THe Cinneli Ram are great bars, but might not have the size you need since is a combo stem and handlebars.. And if I remember correctly around $500 they are stiff and and very comfortable.
Another similar bar/stem is the Deda synapsi but it is close to $600, kestrel and easton also make very good carbon bars. Most strongly suggest you don't use aero bars on them just so you know.
I have the Easton EC-90. I like the particular shape/profile... especially the straight/angular section from the tops to the hoods and was really the reason I chose it and not necessarily because it was CF. I know some people don't like that shape however and prefer a more traditional bend. Easton definately says not to use aerobars with the EC-90 handlebars.

what about the new Zipp bars, or my favorites so far: the new fsa k wing???
In case it hasn't been mentioned, another bar similar in shape to the Easton EC-90 is the U.S.E. carbon road bar (http://www.use1.com/Carbon%20Handlebars%20Road/carbonhandlebars_road.htm).

I like the ITM four handlebars, their cool looking and light, and they will not cost an arm and a leg.
