Why are you buying this bar? Your bike could use many better upgrades than a carbon bar that is only 23" long. This is a race use only bar and for weight weenies. Upgrade your fork first if you are looking for a good upgrade you will feel.

I doubt it will fit. but also look at it logically, that's a $115 set of handlebars. you JUST bought your whole bike for $300. Also, those bars are very narrow and are meant for aerodynamics, not control...you have to have incredible control to really work with those bars. Save your money, those aren't worth it for where you're at.

Carlos you can replace your bars and stem with a decent alloy set for a low price. I just ordered a race face ride stem and race face evolve xc bars in 31.8mm for less than $60.00 for both.

Oh, well in that case, tell HIM to get a rear derailleur. :lol:

Seriously, a handlebar will take off a couple ounces. Waste of time and money for that bike with little return in gain. You need to do a LOT more than that. The heaviest things will be wheels, seats and cranks. You can take 3-4 pounds off by that alone.
