See my alanera post, but the cinelli rams flex alot, more than any other bar I've ever tried, decending was scary, sprinting was weird, no control no confidence, but very comfortable, they did absorb all road vibration and the bumps too, that is until the stem snapped off on a group ride for no good reason at all. My alunimun millinium bar and stem weight circa 360-370 grams and are the stiffest handlebars I've ever owned, definitely not as kool as carbon, and flat top section would be nice but at least they make it in all black.

Although not part of a combo, I would still advise you to consider the Schmolke carbon handlebar. It is light (140-170g depending on how much you want to pay) and it is extremely stiff, but admittedly not as fancy as the some of the combos. Combined with a good light stem you have, IMHO, a much better setup.
