S&M Slam Bars are the best, by far.

And the lightest seatpost clamp? Who cares? The things weigh less than 1.5 ounces.

I remember when I discovered I could cut my slams down. that made life so much better. they are too large in my opinion, but they seem to be becoming popular again...

get whatever bars you like. or what someone else likes...Beerman likes slams, so maybe get some of those..

as for seat post clamps, the lightest is a hose clamp. git one

depends on weither you like narrow bars or wide bars.... as for narrow go with Odyssey Skim Milk bars and for wide bars go with the S&M Slambars...(both are nice and i think they both have warrantys) as for the seatpost clamp......the lightest is the Profile Slim Jim weighing in at like .7 oz

i think slams are way too wide.

i was thinking the same about the clamp. people try to get the lightest things that don't make any difference

I have mine at 25", without the lever on the curve, so I don't see what the big deal is.
