That is an insane frameset!!

You need to slam a 150mm stem, round bars (à la Petacchi/Cipollini) and ride it like you stole it

Need some help choosing the stem/bars - which of the following would you choose?

Stem/Bars:

1: Zipp Sl Sprint/Zipp SL 70 aero
2: Zipp SL Sprint/Zipp Service Course SL-70
3: Zipp SL Sprint/3t Ergosum team
4: Zipp SL Sprint/New Ultimate Evo
5: 3t ARX ltd./ 3t Ergosum team
6: Deda 35 supealeggera stem/Deda 35 supealeggera Carbon
7: Pro Vibe sprint Mark Cavendish edit./Pro Vibe Carbon
8: Cinelli Ram 2

Is there one of you who can help me regarding my frame. I have searched the www and the only Reactos' I can find where it says EVO behind are those which the "real" team uses. Have I accidentally got one of the "real" team bikes?

120g is for the service course SL, OP is considering the sprint SL which is 165g for 100mm stem. I've got the 120mm sprint SL and it weighs 182g but it looks and rides amazingly :D

I would go for the 3t aeronova ltd with arx ltd\team stem. It is light, comfy and aero, nothing to lose :D

Just bought these myself last month. Lovely bars, and a much nicer postion compared to my FSA Omega compact. The 3T are little more stretched out.

2099 for the stem? I could have sold you mine for $1500 ;-)

@yosti none of the above, Thompson road for comfort or KFC for a stiff sprinter bar.

Did you get an accurate weight for the frame, forks and seatpost? Ta

The weight is about 7-7,5kg with the current specs( haven't got a real scale so the measurements are from my bathroom scale )
