I'm with ticou on this one...

I have a 42cm Ritchey WCS Logic II bar at 233g - it's widely available, reasonably priced, and very nearly bombproof. For the extra ounce you pay, the piece of mind is worth it.

I have 3 of those 3t prima 199 for each of my 3 bikes.

Like most things Deda, not what they say they weigh. but nice bars and quite light weight.

My 44cm outside-outside one is 232g, so the 42cm one should not be a whole lot above spec?

+1 for the 3TTT Prima 199s - great bars, weights close to advertised, last well, comfortable, never had a problem. Just got clipped by a car door, front wheel trashed, brake levers scratched up, me black and blue but the Prima 199s are unmarked...
