Keeping in mind I’m not a weight weenie, even when I divorce my wallet from the discussion I prefer the alloy bar’s ride quality. The carbon is not an overly stiff bar (i.e. I’m not complaining it’s too stiff as I have with others) but I think the alloy has a nicer ride. If I was trying to keep the weight down I’d consider carbon but generally I’ve been drifting the other way on all my bikes: Steel Drivetrain wear items, more supportive tires, bigger brake rotors, brass nipples and etc.
