I've been running riser for a year now and been having numbness and pain in the hands and want to go back to flat bars. But I don't want to give up the control that comes with the width.

So I am looking for a 600mm flat bar that is relatively light. Does one exist.

Please help with suggestion.

Ritchey WCS Carbon Low Rise? I've just swapped to some of those, far better than flats, look good still. The control is brilliant too.

The Syntace Duraflite carbon flat bar is fantastic. They have 9* sweep and are nice and wide a ~620mm and come in both 25.4 and 31.6.

just a commentary on the thread title and the original post--600mm no longer qualifies as a "wide" bar!
