I have the same bar. if the SMC doesn't work well for me, I will try that setup. Thank you ! Im also searching for that flat dyneema rope in bulk !
Another advantage with the friction ring and the CL around it, is that the bar is bit closer to you (important in my case as I wanted to keep the hook too, so the rope is loose enough so that the CL can slide freely above it).
If you have the same Naish bar, I would definitely recommend the Wichard FRX 20, because it is lighter (you also have the choice of the bit heavier Antal: http://www.antal.it/eng/R20-14_en
But be aware that in both cases, since the max diameter is 14mm for the rope around it, and the Naish CL being a bit wider, you will have to shave of a bit of plastic on the sides of the CL.
I think that given the small amount of aesthetic plastic removed (I sure do hope that there is some dynema at its core), this is safe to do, and in this way, the CL "clicks" into the friction ring (do not slice too much off it!), and so there is no chance of it coming off when riding (but in case of release, no issue either).
Don't have the bar around me at this time, but I'll try to take a picture of it and post it when I can.
