I know, that's a very handy feature to chain the bike to a streetlight. :lol:

Beautiful and sophisticated bike. Congrat..

I see that you have combo 35 from Deda. I'm thinking of buying it or Superleggera/superleggero. Now I have 3T Ergonova.
Could you tell me something more about 35?

Thanks for the compliment! :D The combo on my bike is a regular 35 stem with a 35 Superleggera bar. Great combo with internal cable routing. If you're doubting between a regular 35 and Superleggera, you'll have both with these bars.

I'm thinking rather about superleggera and superleggera 35 :) I wonder what are the advantages of size 35...not always bigger is better :lol:

I would say internal cable routing and I find the size more pleasant for larger hands. Apparently they are also stiffer, but not being a heavy sprinter I can't comment on that. They look goooood, though...
