I have a set of Easton EC70 31.8 low rise bars on my Nomad. They have alot of upsweep and I find them uncomfortable after 1hr+. My older Easton bars did not have this much upsweep. Can you recommend another bar that is flatter? Cheap and light always good.

Thanks,
Dave

Dave,

You could try going with a flat bar and a riser stem. If you find the right combo, your hands won't know the difference and it will be lighter and stronger than a riser bar. Unfortunately I do not know of any flat bars with more than 5 degrees of sweep or wider than 23 inches, but they may be out there.

Outside!

What is the weight of the Protaper 31.8mm?
270g for the 31.8, 680mm length, 8 deg x 4 deg
250g for the 25.4, 660mm length, 8 deg x 4 deg

3rd vote for this bar. I just got one (25.4 w/ 2" rise) and am loving it so far.
