Hi,

I'm wondering whether there are any reputable manufacturers who make carbon butterfly handlebars ?

Thank You. I like those. Too bad they aren't available anymore. I guess I'll hope to get lucky on ebay.

why carbon? there are better places to save weight on a touring bike than the bars.

That's probably true but I have gotten used to the fantastic feeling when using carbon bars. In my perception it gives me feeling of better dampening. I really like that. I currently have carbon bars on a bike where I'm considering butterfly bars and I would like to retain the feel but add additional hand hold positions.
