Hey guys:

looking to swap for some narrower bars (40cm centre to centre, don't care about reach or drop... yet) and get a 100mm 17 degree stem, however I do not want to drop alot of money in case its not 'right'. Does anyone have any recommendations for bars and stems that come in these specifications for around $100 (I know I'm going to go over :oops: , but the closer the better)? I've been looking at the Zipp Service Course stuff as it fits the budget, but I was wondering if there were any lighter options out there for a similar price?


Please, use search. There are many topics on this.

The Deda 215 shallow drop is about 230g but has a 26.0mm clamp diameter. Other wise the Deda Zero100 bars are a similar price and Zero 1 stem is pretty low weight as well. The zero100 serviso orsa stems are lighter but more expensive.

I quite like Deda offerings.
