I like the idea it can be both - 12 and -7 (-17 is too radical for me).
I also like the looks of it, but the weight is a huge downsizer!

My 120mm is 170g, plus K-Edge mount is around 25g IIRC.

Enve also did a recall on the faceplates. Mine snapped by the single top bolt after a week, then two of my friends went at exactly the same place.

If you have one, I'd definitely check to see if it's ok.

That sucks!
Then one would have to worry about that to :-(
I wonder how many of these are all ready sent out to internet dealers/ shops in EU.

Worst thing having a light bike, is that it feels like adding something with "weight" gives you the shivers.
I'd truely would like a nice alu stem like Extralite, but made to void twisting.
Many of these stems seems like thery're made for strong guys (sprinters)!?
Which i guess wouldn't prio a light weight build?
I can certainly notice flex more as i have gained alot weight last 5 years.

They are honestly some of the nicest stems I have ever seen. The only other stem I have seen that is adjustable with shims like that is the Zipp stem for oversized steerer tubes. I wish someone made a similar looking stem without the price tag that enve demands.

Anyone knows which bar is this? This seems to be the only bar that I saw which doesn't have the bulk end after the bar end junction is being installed.

Well, it looks like a team bike with full Shimano/Pro sponsorship, so presumably some kind of Pro Vibe.
