  I think Stihl has the best selection of lightweight bars on the market, nice and stiff too.

BTW I think I built the worlds first functional lightweight bar 32yrs ago way back in 1983.  :D
I copied the idea off old Mac designs from the 1950's but made it functional by filling the cutout holes with JB Weld and aluminium plates
Still holding fine today.

Kevin,
I knew I posted my homemade bikesaw light weight bar a while ago on this thread so I went back to make sure.
It was my own photo in my gallery over at Forestry Forum and look what they did.
I also found out they deleted my whole amateur chainsaw competitions thread.Being sponsored by my Husqvarna dealer and lots of videos must have upset their big sponsor...

Anyways here's that picture I took again of my 36 year old lightweight 18" fat belly bar with big roller nose, 2.5 lbs.
