Need recommendation on light weight handlebar(9 posts)

Need recommendation on light weight handlebarEnduro48

I fit a size 42 handle bar, and need to know which light weight brands/models are best for someone with small hands? I don't want to have trouble reaching for the brake levers.

I have large hands, but prefer a bar with a short reach. I ordered a TTT Morphe when I rebuilt my rainbike, and I was so happy with it that I've ordered another for my main ride. BTW, the 42cm Morphe measures more like 40cm bars I've had in the past, so if you decide to go with TTT, be aware of that difference.

Anatomic - try www.wisecyclebuys.com
...don't forget Deda, TTT measures out-out, not C-C I think,NMSpunout

Hey, they are $6.00 cheaper than where I bought by 215's from at http://www.bikeusa.com/components/handlebars/handlebars3.htm
I'll remember them next time. Thanks!

Enduro48, I opted the non-anatomic short reach (136 mm), with short drop (81 mm) Deda 215's and really like how they feel in my medium size hands.

I have been very happy with EC-90 carbon bars on 2 bikes. But you can not clamp on aero bars.
