Hey

So, when I am not spending hours on end, doing the engineering research on behalf of bicycle companies who don't seem to be able to do it for themselves, I do go on the odd bike ride.

I bought some Deda Superleggera bars last year and have been riding them for about 6 months or so.

Well, I wanted to know if anyone else has these bars and can confirm my own experiences with them.

Basically, they are flexible as a b@stard, when sprinting in the drops.

I previously had a set of Deda Zero100s which compared to these new ones, were super stiff.

I guess this is me saying I am disappointed in them; has anyone else found them overly flexible in the drops?

EDIT; oops, posted this it the wrong sub-forum, sorry!

Is it the 4000W sprint thats doing it?

I'd suggest a solid bar, bent to shape. ;o)

(And no, i've not used the Superleggeras, but i do like the Zero 100)

Haha.

Well, I am comparing the Superleggera flex to the Zero100. The Superleggera bars are carbon, and the Zer100 are aluminium... The Superleggera are my first carbon bars, so I am wondering if this might just be what carbon bars are like, or if these particular bars are particularly flexible(?)

I think others have posted about this in another thread:

viewtopic.php?f=3&t=106698

I also found Deda Presa bars also a little flexy in the drops (and I am not a power monster). Definately not the case for all carbon bars. The 3T Egosomethings I have now seem very rigid/harsh (and as a bonus have a horrible shape forcing your elbows out and putting your shifters at a funny angle). I'd think I'd take the Presa (again) and maybe even the Superlegarro in retrospect.

I felt flex tonight in them but I don't think it is a problem.

I have the 35's superleggera and i cant feel too much flex, but i can see the bars move when i get off the bike and give it a push/pull. so i can only imagine the regular (31.6) superleggera has more flex as they are about 3.5mm less in diameter.

i got the 35's because of the way they feel with the bars fully wrapped, i like the bigger top portion of the bars... i just went with superleggera because i thought they would be stiff enough as they are 35's, but i think the regular 31.6 would feel a bit flexy (i assume).
