had a cf low riser on my last two bikes (one died preemee), and judging from the replies here, my experience was unique.
it DID make the front end feel noticeably lighter, both in steering and lifting the front end; but the vibration damping i was expecting just wasn't there...in fact, it was worse!! no flex at all -- oh, and the "old" raceface SYStem wouldn't hold the sucker! CRREEEEAAAAKKKK!!!!!
i'm sticking w/ aluminum bars for the duration, thanks. (btw, the brand of bar was profile)
