Control tech by easton
Answer Hyperlite or taperlite by easton
salsa bars

ritchey force/forcelite? (although I have steered clear of putting anything ritchey on my bikes so far)

I have a monster it came with a salsa roller cam stem and FC bars...I am sure they were made by someone else like TIOGA or something, i believe you are right about the Suntour Pro being mainly a standard. (again is this TIOGA?)

Tioga sounds interesting , wanted to avoid Answer hyperlites as have them for another build . Salsa ones I fear will be hard to source

Any other suggestions ?

Bontrager Ti bars were always nice upgrade. I just picked one up for my Yo build but I am thinking about putting on my rigid Litespeed in my quest to go all Ti.

I don't remember them going that far back but I am old and these things happen.

I'd still search for True Temper bars. Syncros made a nice bar back then too.

They've been up on eBay fairly frequently lately. There are version with lots of sweep and more straight examples. Both are pretty sweet.

All my '91 bikes had them at some point, but I don't know how far before and after that they lasted as spec.
