Nice looking bar.
But all this efforts to build one out of carbon, yet at the end ending heavier than Boardriding Maui aluminum system...
Yes, I was interested in buying the BRM but that is not possible from outside the US. Furthermore Kitech never answered my request on their carbon bar, so...
But I like to build and learn stuff and I learned much about different materials, techniques, and how a bar system works. I also managed to more than half the weight of the system and apparently got within 8 gr. of a BRM production bar! Wait a second - I'll remove my line extensions and measure again
But yeah, I've heard it before:
Wife: HEY, let's buy this thing for $$$!
Me: Come on - I can build something like that much cheaper and better!
Wife: *shaking her head in despair*
