    Handlebars

    I currently have Specialized XC flat 31.8mm OS bars with 5 degree backsweep on my Stumpjumper Hardtail. I am interested in replacing them with some type of riser bar. What would be a good light weight riser to add to my racing bike? Include price if you know it.

    Easton boasts that their carbon CNT technology is more "impact resistant" than aluminum bars.

    Hambone,

    i have two of their handlebars. one on my road bike which feels great and the OS MR bar for my mtb that unfortunately i have not built yet. all i can say is it appears nice. i included the weights below. it is definitely pretty light. what i also liked about the riser mtb bar was that is was fairly "mild" ...nothing to drastic.

    i just thought i'd mention these because i don't think too many people ever consider them. they seem like a quality company with quality parts.

    take care

    Just go up to Sycamore Cycles and let Wes hook you up. I think you need a good DH bar on that rig.
