Carbon handlebars!!
Would you ride these?? resimresimresim I noticed this today so swapped them for some crappy aluminium bars that I had kicking around. Do you reckon that I could have smashed my pretty little face into my stem?

Hmm, not sure if I'd fancy it much tbh. Get your lbs to check it out and see what they think.

Not a chance, think I'd rather keep my teeth !!!
Yeah I think I'll avoid them and keep using the alloy ones.

Looks like they've been crushed to me, but I certainly wouldn't ride em.

Yep, look overtightened unfortunately

One weakened they could fail very easily. Save yourself the dental bill
Thanks mate

Must agree over binning them, carbon does go without warning . Heres a pick of my cranks a couple of months back, got replaced under warranty.
Highly recommend a torque wrench for tightening stem bolts most don't need to be more than 5-6nm.
