I just bought these for my new bike because of their light weight. They also have a short reach/drop version I needed (143 mm drop, 87 mm reach). I found them for only $66 (usually upper $80's) at http://www.bikeusa.com/components/handlebars/handlebars3.htm

3T prima 199. A little flexy but one of the lightest bars out there. good ergo profile and are not to expensive. I tried the easton carbon and could not get used to the funny top bend, and they weighed more than the prima.

dont really see any around other than the guy who sold me mine on ebay for $28 new (he usually lists 1 or 2 a week but only in 42 and 44 cm o-o). they seem fine thus far - i did expect them to be a little noodly but i am surprised as i cannot tell the diff. between these and the pro 260's (im 180lbs).

and yes i particularly bought them as they are silver to match my quill stem :-)

and with regard to the ebay seller i bought a couple of other things from him (tires and cassette) at the same time that he usually has in stock and he made a better price for me than he would have had he listed the items for auction and shipped them at no extra cost. if this sounds like a rap it is and he deserves one for stellar prices and service. youll find him if you look for the bars on ebay.

Cinelli with standard, non-anatomic-shaped drops. Remember those?

nice and stiff, reasonable weight, but requires a stem with an oversized clamp.

Easton carbon fiber is what I have on my ride. I've only had them for a few months and they are much better than the Icon bars that came with my bike. The only thing I don't like about them is the flat part of the drops at the very end of the bar is not as long as my Icon bars were. I rarely ride in this position so it hasn't affected me much. These bars also take up some of the road shock, but nothing worth noting over my aluminum bars.
Anything like the 3T Morphe?LC

I like the shape of the morphe, but at they are too heavy to race. Anyone know of something similar?

I love my Ritchey WCS anatomic. Very light, but stiff and comfortable.
They DO look weird, with those big bumps on the drops, but I've found the bumps to be a very natural and comfortable place to rest my hands, and it's actually caused me to spend more time in the drops.

I got mine through an employee purchase program and love them. They're stiff enough that the stem flexs before they do. I've got the eastons and don't like the drop but do like the bend so I'm indifferent about them. The kestrels also seem to have the exact same dimensions and weights as the itm but at a much lower price. Yes this is a plug for the deal I got since I really like them. Russ
