I would like to know what handlebar and stem would be good for someone that is 100 lbs? I would like to have it light.
I am not a racer but I do like riding hard and riding long distance throughout the year.

More info would be helpful...PsyDoc

How much money do you want to spend on these two items? Do you have a threaded or threadless set-up? Do you have a carbon steerer on your fork, aluminum, or steel? As for threadless stems, I really like the Ritchey WCS as it is relatively light, nice and stiff, and the clamping area that secures the fork's steerer tube is offset, which reduces stresses on carbon fiber steerer tubes. As for handlebars, give Easton or Kestrel bars a try or if you want to shy away from carbon, then try the TTT 199 bars or the Deda's.

It is one inch threadless and one piece carbon fork. I have a titanium and carbon fiber frame. I am 100 lbs.
