Bontrager has their bar stem combo on sale right now. Although it only comes in -7 degrees.

Where to get it?
The "older model" (just a different color scheme) is on sale for $300 (down from $600) on Trek's website, though only in 42cm and a few stem length options. You can probably also find it for the same price but without tax elsewhere online.

Thanks guys for your input!

I would prefer a -10 deg stem 100mm, matte black. (Yes the frame is matte black). I really like the new Enve stem but I cannot justify a 180g+ stem on this bike! :noidea:

Bontrager is nice but to me it belongs on a Trek!
the new enve aero stem is very stiff, and it comes with several shims should you want to go lower than -10 in the future.

I have a 100mm Deda SuperZero stem (Matt black with black polish details) on my S-Works SL4 Roubaix. It’s 141g and superstiff.

Question: building up an SL6 (S-Works or Pro) frame, what bottom bracket do you use? I am thinking of getting a frame to build with SRAM Red and a Red Quarq power meter, but not sure I'm reading the Specialized specs right for the bottom bracket.

Comes with bb30 bearings that press directly into the frame. Get an sram red or quarq for bb30 and it’ll be a good match

Thanks, that's good to know (already have that on my current race bike, so that'd save me $ if I just switch it over)!

Any crank made for BB30 will fit directly with no spacer required. Sram GXP, any 24mm axle cranks and BB386 cranks will require adapters or spacers.
