any Alu suggestions that are light?

Also still looking for a bar that has a narrower bar top section?

Zipp I'm still not sure on..very expensive and 3T had reports of flexing.

thanks


Reynolds haven't made bars in about 5years, there pro round versions (not ouzo pro) were extremely light

If you can get a 3T Prima used or NOS those were under 200 grams in aluminum.

you can check out the weights here.

3T Prima comes in black painted aluminum and they do not have 31.8.

Check on ebay there is a NOS "3TTT Less 199" for 165$

easton slx3 are nice bars, u can get them very narrow, and decently cheap. not very stiff.

-17 stems are king of dope. get one.

so got round the problem of matching bars and stem with the help of a bit of nail varnish remover!

Gonna go for a set of these now as well, as like the shape, hear they are pretty stiff and light.

Oh c'mon, surely it is a little wrong, right up there with taping your bars all the way to the stem and mismatching socks :)

Reports of stem flex are often greatly exaggerated.
