    Default Custom road bar makers?

    Alright, this may be a little nuts. Does anyone know of a custom carbon road bar maker? Or are the molds too expensive to play around with one-off projects?

    Thanks, interesting chart. But I'm looking for someone to create an "homage" to an existing bar shape, but in 31.8 rather than 26.

    I imagine carbon fiber would be the way to go, hence the phrase "carbon copy."

    Stay calm, this remains at pipe dream stage. But think something more like a carbon fiber "squid ink pasta" bar . . .
