I was in my LBS and saw a Stella Azzura Tirreno carbon handlebar. My cycling "adviser" suggested I not use a CF handlebar due to my size and strength. Any thoughts? I don't usually question him, but I REALLY want this bar.

My shop has it too. I'm 210 lbs and they said it was plenty strong for me. The big problem is that it cost $475. If you really want to spend that kind of money then go ahead, the bar will be as strong as any lightweight aluminum bar out there. Just remember, you will be covering most of it with handlebar tape, computer and stem so you really will only see an inch or two when it is built. Not really worth the hefty price tag if you ask me.

BTW- The shop you went to didn't happen to be in St. Louis did it?
