    Ooooohhhh... very nice.

    You'll be selling these, right? In addition to the weights, toss out a cost you'd want to charge for a set. I'd very possible buy one.

    I made a set with carbon fiber for my Chrisalis, cost over $100 and were no lighter than the aluminum ones my buddy made that are identical to the ones in the WWRR. But infinitely stronger.

    I am with you they are not cheap to make at all but I am thinking these should be half the weight of the stock ones

    That's what I thought too, and I even used carbon fiber for the shaft that hooks them together. My buddy used the alum ones with the alum ends and his were the same weight as mine. I used 5/8 outside diameter with 1/2 inside diameter carbon fiber.

    Nice work looking shinny. Cant wait to see the weight of these bars
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.
