The stem is 16quid at Wiggle ATM too, bargin.
/\ Only 80mm BTW /\
“Weight is a healthy 320 grams”
Bontrager Rhythm Pro (OS) 710mm, 50mm rise are 265g? Okay so they’re £10 more, but 5.5g/£ is also a pretty ‘healthy’ weight saving
FSA Gravity Lite (OS) 710mm, 20/40mm rise are 290g. You can pick them up for £30 (from On-One)
I suppose they are the FR versions to be fair
What an interesting combination of parts… Freeride bar meets fly-weigh stem meets all-mountain seatpost.
I love the look of the new Syncros parts. There is an AM Carbon bar at 710mm and 200g if your that way tempted.
A healthy weight is not always the lightest, so while James identifies lighter options, sometimes a bit more bulk will just mean more chance of failiure.
Yawn. New Syncros. Yawn. Give me the old Syncros with the wicked cool t-shirts from the 1990′s when the products were made in Canada and it was a cool brand. Are they still owned by Ritchey?
