I started with a 6 degree bar, now on Easton 3 degree backsweep, and needing a pencil-straight bar.
Ti Cycles used to be here in Seattle, now in Portland OR but Dave still does bars of all kinds.
What about a 7/8" carbon tube? Would I be risking my life to try this kind of bar stock:

(It's got .050" wall thickness)
I have a 130g bar now, so I don't really want to go over that.
Would have thought that some manufacturer offers a carbon fiber 'dildo' bar...Oh hey, maybe I should look in a sexshop??

Or Giant CRC is claimed to be straight

Looked on eBay, apparently the chinese think that a "straight" bar means flat with sweepback. Lost in translation
Any other suggestions?
Try CF specialists for straight tube, but you'll either have 22.2mm which means shims or 25.4 and be unable to fit controls.....
And it seems from poking around the interwebs that there are no light wieght 110 stems with a 22.2 bar mount.
So either use shims with a 25.4 stem, or i might ask Calfee or someone similar to fuse/wrap the 7/8 bar onto a lightweight stem and create a monocoque.
Looks like I keep using my 7/8" OD carbon tube w/.0625 wall that I found. That's been working fine so far.
I emailed TBC to suggest they might want to use a different word than "straight" to describe their backswept bar.
As for the CF bar, doesn't matter what it is designed for, it's either strong enough or not!
