I’m building a new Giant TCR sl disc and can’t decide what stem to use. The new more aero but boxy looking flux or the traditional SLR. What does everyone think?

Neither float my boat, something Italian?, if it’s carbon maybe something German?

SLR I think looks better on a traditional frame. Boxy one for an aero build.

For a TCR then the SLR out of those two for sure. Otherwise the Ritchey Superlogic in 1.25" looks good on that frame.

I find it hard to believe that just the stem can make such a great aero difference, and IMO the first one looks dopey on climbing bikes.
