Those carbon bars make me very nervous. Hopefully this did not result in injury.

well he doesn't look like...
I do remember buying my handlebar and having it in my bag, it is an alu one and didn't seem so heavy. Carbon handlebars are for money-addicted. Instead I would think first about getting rid of the few odd kilos I have in myself :)

Different tech, different application and most importantly, different quality control!

Check this out, if you haven't seen it.

If you set it up properly with carbon paste and extremely careful torque on the bolts.
This picture looks like the stem was over torqued...

I don't run carbon because im worried about crash damage, but a few riding friends do and they do large jumps and stuff no issues so far...

It's the torque that scares me. There are guys who SWEAR they followed the recommendations and still suffered a failure. Besides, I just ain't that careful. it's part of what steered me away from the Ibis. Well, that and the cost. Ok, I'm lying. Just the cost.

Hottest material in research is spider's silk, which can now be made artificially. A few more years and we might see the first bike parts !
