dear college, I am a Civil Structural Engineer. With MSc, and? Is your point who's got the bigger di.ck?
This bar looks completely sanded, down to fibers. So you are saying 30-40% is epoxy, so you are NOT touching 60-70% bare carbon?
Your argument is that 'some' of your bars are much more slippery? And I am arguing but your involvement in giving the feedback to a subject is to piss on my opinion....
Whow. Unbelievable. You did not find ANY issues what so ever worth to mention to OP as a mechanical engineer? Really? But you have find a HUGE issue with protecting your turf, which is "I've been working with composites my whole career". Poor OP, not worth of your time and involvement with a community.
The triathlon individual sits next to me, and he is riding 5000km per month. I asked him.

Every single handle bar on this link has a grip tape. What is your point? When I said this is a personal preference how is that a BS?
Secondly, a few layers of carbon is NOT a thermal insulator. The epoxy you are talking about is only in MUCH thicker application, and for this bar, the wall thickness is max 1mm.
The ultra gloss varnished carbon helmet with 2 layers of Carbon and 1 200g fiberglass (0.4-0.5mm laminate) goes to 50-60C in less than two minutes on the Sun.
Less than 2 minutes! You can bake an egg on the carbon board left on the Sun, ffs....
