looking to upgrade my handlebars to carbon fibre and have looked around on the net, the following two appear to have favourable reviews

http://www.wiggle.co.uk/p/cycle/7/3T_Er ... 360039107/

does anyone have experience of either and can offer some advice on the topic?

    I would always go for 3T over FSA!

    I had the FSA bars and could not fault them at all.

    I did exactly the same - after using the carbon on the race bike, I bought the alloy for the audax

    Yep 3T Eronova bars here too. Good stuff 3T.

    I recently put alloy Ergonovas on my new Scott. I still haven't made up my mind if I like the shape but they are nicely made bars and look great. Be aware that they flare outwards so the distance across the hoods is approx 2cm shorter than the c-c distance at the drops, which is the quoted size. You may want to go up a size for this reason.

    I had some 3T Ergosums, prefer my FSA K Force Compacts... Shape is better for me, I find the 3ts a little thin.

    I didn't get on with the 3T ergonova but maybe i just didn't give them long enough, they look good with the stem but i found the top a little too flat and they're not that comfortable on the drops.
    We all know how hard it is to find the right bars and it's down to what you find comfortable, not Joe Bloggs from Pigs Knuckle in Dorset, i'm sticking or maybe i'm stuck with buying Ritchey Evolution bars for now.

    I also have the team on one bike and the pro on another. Really pleased with them - the short reach and shallow drop suit me so that I am much more comfortable in the drops.
