That is an insane frameset!!

You need to slam a 150mm stem, round bars (à la Petacchi/Cipollini) and ride it like you stole it

Need some help choosing the stem/bars - which of the following would you choose?

Stem/Bars:

1: Zipp Sl Sprint/Zipp SL 70 aero
2: Zipp SL Sprint/Zipp Service Course SL-70
3: Zipp SL Sprint/3t Ergosum team
4: Zipp SL Sprint/New Ultimate Evo
5: 3t ARX ltd./ 3t Ergosum team
6: Deda 35 supealeggera stem/Deda 35 supealeggera Carbon
7: Pro Vibe sprint Mark Cavendish edit./Pro Vibe Carbon
8: Cinelli Ram 2

Is there one of you who can help me regarding my frame. I have searched the www and the only Reactos' I can find where it says EVO behind are those which the "real" team uses. Have I accidentally got one of the "real" team bikes?

120g is for the service course SL, OP is considering the sprint SL which is 165g for 100mm stem. I've got the 120mm sprint SL and it weighs 182g but it looks and rides amazingly :D
