The THM Tibula I just purchased needs a fatter bar than the AX Lightness I have(bar is 146g and stem is 72g...both for sale...cheap). The AX combo comes to 218g while the top S-Works non-aero offering clocks in at 250g.

Ok. Not clear at all. But i assume you mean thm tibia. I also assume you mean that the bar and stem were 26mm clamp not 31.8. In that case options for a light bar are the obvious schmolke tlo, with less common options bikeahead or haero h145sl in the 145-155g gram range. But it depends on the geo that you want. I have the haero h145sl. They are 155g in a 42cm bar. They are plenty stiff for me and the curve works for my hands.

I agree, and own the Schmolke TLO and can confirm it is a great bar and uber light. My second choice would be the Haero h145sl.

The bar measured to 27+. I'll check out the recommendations.

The THM bar has same shape as 3T Superergo.
Haero has the shortest reach, but sadly none of them has a drop of 125mm.
Anyone seen a bar with 75mm reach, 125mm drop?
Only bar i see with a shape and measurement i like, is Lightweight KompaktbĂĽgel.
But it's way to expensive (and rather heavy at 196g) for being made in Asia.
