It looks like Trek/Bontrager removed the XXX Integrated Bar/Stem from their website. The old link no longer works: http://www.bontrager.com/model/12500

Here's a link to the Google's cached page:
http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:HPkBi4kAKQYJ:www.bontrager.com/model/12500+&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us

Anyone know whether they decided not to sell it? Or what the story is?

Thanks.

It has been removed from Treks Australian website as well. I wanted one.
Hope they fix the problem and have them back up for sale soon.

Looks like these bars are available again. Anyone know the real weight of a set? And anyone have feedback, positive or negative?

Thanks.

As with so many other integrated solutions, only max 100mm stems in 400mm width. And not an hint of info regarding weight, reach and drop. Good work Bontrager :evil:

I have Bontrager XXX bars (42cm) and stem (90cm). The adjustability is worth the weight penalty.

Unless you find an integrated combo that fits you out of the box.

Or you just accept the way it is.

Width of bars and length of stem are only 2 variables. You can't select he drop or change the angle.

I guess being a weight weenie has it's limitations.

Their compact design seems long being 92mm reach. Most compact bars are less then 85 reach. Would like to know if you can get a flat transition to the hoods with those bars.
