Wiggle expects them by March, so I'm assuming other shops as well?

It's just that Deda Elementi's listed weights correspond to what the products would weigh on a celestial body with about 20% lower gravitational force than on Earth, and then translated back to what that would be in grams per gravity on the Earth's surface. Now, if you want to call that lying ...


Isn't that what Italy is to cycling....A celestial body?

Deda is using a 31.7 bar clamp diameter on these new bars. Maybe they are giving up on their 35mm bar clamp diameter?

@ winky - they've released both formats. It wouldn't be commercially sensible to close the door on 99.99% of the market format.

On Deda's website it only shows the new bars with a 31.7mm diameter.

Do these bars have the cable guides on the underside, like the Presa? I really do find them awkward to work with......

Try using ilinks - they will get into the bend & guide a lot sharper & you don't end up with the inverse curve that you will do with standard cables. I'm using the outer gear feed route fwiw on ultrashift lever.

On a 42c/c presa std cables were awkward & I had some friction problems pretty soon after fitting.

With ilinks the curve to meet the guide is much easier & as a result no friction problems.

Lighter too...

The cable guides are grooved as opposed to being tunneled like on the Presa.
