Who makes these aside from Calfee? I'm not sure I'm sold on theirs especially the integration for a computer mount and I have a custom project in the works and like the idea of trying a custom integrated option.

Appleman does a custom bar and stem like the Calfee design. I haven't seen one in person but it looks like he knows what he's doing.

Looks like some of these are just separate bars/stems fused together, which is sort of a "Why even bother?" thing to me. The Baum and Predator look promising though.

Beautiful bar stem combo. I also looked at your facebook page. You are very talented. My son tried to start making carbon fiber parts for BMW. After a year It became a black hole for money without any parts to show for it. Great to see a successful craftsman and engineer.

I'm pretty sure Nick Crumpton doesn't do that anymore.

NoRa (Nordischer Rahmenbau) has reportedly stopped doing business recently. Website is still working, but from what I've heard they are no longer taking on new projects.

Great work guys, but that one of Berk's is a thing of beauty. I've had a few integrated bars, but none of them came near to that weight.

My Rue bar/stem was that light but no where near as beautiful. I would love to get Berk to do a new bar/stem for me.

I'm tempted as well. Berk, can we have more pics of the bars showing the curve?
