    Most of my XC bikes have the Truvativ T40 bars. My Ti and SS bikes have Ibis 760.
    I'm currently looking for a 760-780 bar for a Kokopelli/BCBR bike.....
    I think that I like the: Syncros Hixon SL iC 780mm Carbon Handlebar but it is way too expensive (if I end up not liking it).

    Love some carbon, but how about titanium?

    I have a rigid steel bike that I'd love some more bar compliance on, but putting carbon bars on a steel bike just seems wrong, so I'm thinking about Ti. Anyone have any thoughts?

    @Faust29 what stem did you go with? Probably not necessary right this moment for me, but on list. Any improvement on function with new stem? Thanks

    If I could afford Ti, I’d jump on these in a second. Check out their bikes also...

    Check out watsoncycles. They have good stuff. The guy says he can make whatever you want. 180.oo ish. But I've seen Ti at twice that.

    For the 31.8 bars I went with the Salsa stem from Jensons... And was pretty surprised at the quality and weight.
