From what I can tell, FSA - www.fullspeedahead.com makes some great CF stuff if you're absolutely hellbent on having CF stuff. Easton makes a nice Monkeylite SL carbon fiber bar that's on sale just about everywhere.

IDe go for the Easton EC70 if you want carbon handlebars. Ive been running it and i have no complaints, the only difference of the more expensive and lighter EC90 is that the ec90 is 2 inches or something shorter.

It's not worth the price difference for 30g, go with the EC70.
