Hi,

I want to change my actual handlebar Truvativ Noir T30 700mm with 10 degrees backsweep (http://www.bike24.com/1.php?content=8;n ... 1156:11159)
with one of these:

1) TUNE Lenker Turnstange Flatbar UD Carbon 31,8 x 750 mm 6.5 degrees backsweep, rider limit 110KG


2) New Ultimate Lenker EVO Flat UD Carbon 31,8 x 700 mm, 8 degrees backsweep, rider limit 90KG

Considering that I weight around 85KG which one should I choose ? I like more the Tune for the brand, for the maximum rider limit, the problem is with the difference in the backsweep (10 vs 6.5) and I'm not sure what impact it would have in my riding position. The Lenker has a more closer backsweep, but the 90KG rider limit could be a concern for me.
What do you think ?
Thanks!

The difference I found with back sweep is the comfort in the wrists. For me the bar with less sweep puts you into a more of an aggressive or attack position...elbows out...but after a while...my wrists start to tire. The bar with more sweep put my wrists in a more natural position.

I'm using a Niner RDO 710mm with 9deg on my XC bike. My AM bike...it got a 780mm bar with 7 deg back sweep.

I also have found the Niner bars with 9 degrees to be prefect for my wrists. One of my bikes has 6 degrees and is not as comfortable. If you are currently at 700 and 10 degrees and comfortable then I would go with the New Ultimate that is very close or the Niner that is even closer. I cut all my Niner bars to 680 by the way.

If you like the sweep on your current bars you may hate the bars with less sweep-
I suggest finding something with 9-10 degreees of sweep if you know you like that.
I like sweep so I like the Truvativ T40, also like the Easton and Enve.

The Easton and Enve bars will be too heavy if the Niner bar @ 159gr is too much.

The MCFK bar looks pretty cool and super light. I wonder how durable it'll be...especially after a few crashes.

I have two MCFK handlebars and have never had any problem with them.

If you think 159g is heavy I won't mention thompson which is what I have. FSA do some very light flat bars. I have one 580mm wide and very little sweep that weighs 111g. The position on that is very aggressive but not uncomfortable.
