I've used the same Thomson X2 for the past 6 years (moved between different bikes) and it's been great. Could probably get it a little light switching to Ti hardware. For what it's worth, the stiffest cockpit I've used to date has been an X2 stem mated to an Enve bar; aesthetically they match up pretty well too.

I love the looks of the Thomson and the low stack, but not the weight. My 110mm weighs 147 ouch.

My 100mm WCS (white) weighs 115g with ti bolts I borrowed from the 3T.

What is 25g if you can get 3mm lower on the Thomson?

Fashion police be damned - Ritchey stem, Bontrager VRS bars, KCNC seatpost.
