What aluminium bar do you recommend?
Something light in weight.

Isn't the monkey lite a CF bar?
The best aluminum bar is made from titanium :)

If it's because you're a Clydesdale relax, you don't have to worry about Maxm bars (http://www.maxmcomponents.com/pages/handlebars.html) They have an interior Aramid (read Kevlar) structural reinforcement grid. I come in at
6'4" 250 and my MX-5 that I run on my trailbike and the MX-6 (both are risers) that I have on my commuter have been trouble-free. I used to think I'd snap any CF bar out there but with these I don't worry about it of course having a lifetime warranty takes a lot of worry out of the equation as well.

Flat bars? Hmmmm, don't really have a preference. I've always like Easton products I've got a set of carbon AND a set of their aluminum ones. Both are top quality.

I got a cheap and lite store-brand alum bar from Performance. I've had some knarly wrecks, and it hasn't bent yet:

Crap! Disregard my last post, please!
I forgot that I actually changed my mind at the last minute and got a low-end Richey somewhere... 'still happy with it!
err aluminum is different to titanium different metals... :o
