Second the Syntace stem recommendation. The F109 or F119 are both fine stems, light (although not the lightest) and inexpensive. Syntace logos can be removed in seconds with a little acetone without damage to the finish.

Thanks for the comments. NWSAlpine, I will look into the Zipp stem definitely.

One more:

How come your using nokons for the brakes at the front of the bike but not at the back or for the shifting? Also get some #06 orings and get rid of the cables beads a much cleaner solution, 3 per cable contact point works pretty good

Darn nice bike. I have a hankering for a z1 some day

I've had the Nokons from my previous bike and only some of the brake housing remained. I had to use what was readily available here in Lebanon, which is the Jagwire set for the shifting. Will look at the O-ring option you noted.

Thanks all for the comments :beerchug:

Nice One!
Hopefully this one will last longer than the previous 2.
Enjoy the L.A. riding and get up PCH to Malibu for some fun climbs.
