I am drawing a blank.

Even though I have the right sized frame I need a 130mm stem on my xc bike. 120mm has me too upright.

The bar need to flat and not swept back. The stem needs to have no rise.

The Chinese integrated bar stem combo I have currently is light enough but 120mm and to much rise in the stem.

What else is there or do I have to go back to heavier alloy stem and bars.

There must be something for weirdos like me.

would you consider chinese straight-no rise handlebars with 130mm kalloy uno stem? The latter can be pimped with Ti screws, and the bars can be very light.

I guess it would be around 250 grams for the cockpit combined

That's probably what I'll do. Either that or get Berk to do an integrated bar.
