A nice CF handlebar is about a 120 g weight reduction over a decent alloy handlebar, whereas a CF stem might not save you any weight at all. At 18 lbs. and nearly all CF components, you are definitely on the steep end of the diminishing returns curve. Other than the CF handlebar and TPU tubes, it is hard to think of any component which would bring a 3 digit weight reduction.

Come on, not bringing water "on more drawn out low gear climbs"?
