Not that it seems many are using the Barmac, and not too many threads here about its weight. I just pulled mine off to swap to a Ritchey c260 and 3T Ergonova Team and thought I'd weight it.

This is for a 42 x 110, 0 degree. Weights were much lighter than I expected for the bare bar/stem at 336g. With hardware, 390g, which is about where I expected it to land.


Just for comparison sake, both parts below weighed with same scale:

Ritchey c260, 110mm = 109g (all inclusive with hardware)
3T Ergonova Team 44cm = 200g

Saved about 80g and can't really tell one is more stiff than the other - ride on Zipp 303's so the handlebar/stem area is not where I'm going to flex.
