Don't bother...

Ti bars are heavier, flexier, and generally worse than both aluminum and carbon bars. Unless you're looking for something odd (JJ H-bars) ti bars are a waste of your money, even at $35. The only thing worse (in my opinion, anyway) is a ti stem. Good lord I hate ti stems - Schwinn kept speccing them on the Homegrowns when I raced for them, and I kept taking them off and giving them away. The darn things made the front end of the bike feel like it was made of rubber.

Hmm. Rant over, sorry everyone.

The upside is that they'll probably never break in your lifetime. And some people might like slightly flexier.
