I just got some nice Salsa stuff. (I am sensitive to shilling btw. We are *not* a dealer for *any* of this stuff).

The wide carbon flat bars are very nice. They lower my position in the front of the bike to where I like it now, and are a full 660 mm wide. I was blown away by the weight - 135 grams with bar end plugs, less than the quoted weight. Nice graphics, clearcoat, etc. The weave of the carbon does not line up perfectly in places - hey, I gotta have a nit of some kind.

The 29er disc rims have been reviewed aplenty. But they are worth noting. They are super wide and light - like 502 grams. The rear will get a King hub. For the front I am thinking of using the Funn convertible QR/Disc type hub in case I get a wild hair and want to use them with the White Brothers 130 mm fork in the future.
