I have tried to search both google and this forum, but all I can find is information on how to spot a fake Cinelli Ram seatpost, nothing about how to spot a fake handlebar. So if this has already been asked, then sorry!

What I would like to know is how to tell if a Cinelli Ram2 handlebar is genuine or fake? I ask because I have a Ram2 Bianco which I would like to know if it is genuine or not.

Check the weight. The 3T carbon bar fakes on ebay are a lot heavier than the genuine article.

The fake Ram bars I can find on ebay are pretty close to the original ones, so guess that is not so accurate? I am hoping there is something with the weave of the carbon, the paint or a serial number somewhere?
