My 42cm LTDs weighed in at 185g with the liners still in. Really nice bars, I’ve only taped the tops as far as the corners, as a long time MTBer and early adopter of wide bars, riding on the tops feels strange to me, but the corner grips work really well.

Just got my 3T Superergo LTD bars, and 4 hours later, they're on the bike. I decided not to replace the inner cables (not too much use on them) so routing them through took a while (especially the crimped up front derailleur cable).

First off, after all the reviews complaining about the internal routing, it turned out to be a breeze. The bars had two plastic liners routed between the two shifter entry ports. I routed 4 small lengths of shifter inner cable through each shifter entry port and respective exit port. Then, I pushed the shifter outer cable through the shifter entry port, using the short length of shifter inner cable as a guide. Pushing the outer cable out through the exit port was a bit challenging, but a small screwdriver easily plucked it out. Did the same for the brake outer cables and the bars were ready for the bike.

Reach is noticeably shorter than my Bontrager XXX bars. The corners are definitely the best part. Just from 5 minutes on the trainer, I can tell that these bars are going to be super comfortable. Shifting and braking is smooth as ever. I was able to push and pull on the outer cables easily while installing the shifters as well.

I find the external radius is more important than the shape of the internal bend from tops to ramps. This is why I ended up hating my XXX...the bend is so sharp on the outside, it's not a comfortable resting spot as a hand position in between the tops and hoods. It also makes contact with my wrists with my hands in the hooks/drops.

Going from XXX to Superergo is going from one extreme to the other. The ergonomic differences aren't subtle.

I just got these bars and trying to determine what to do with Campy 12 speed mechanical. Obviously, routing internal would be the best aestheticall but would there be any decrease in shifting performance? I'm debating just running the cables and housing external. Thoughts?

I saw no performance difference at all with internal routing (Shimano R8000 mechanical/rim). You could route the cables underneath the tops since they are pretty flat but internal really is the way to go.

Can someone tell me how to get the Di2 bar-end to work?
I have a 3T Superergo but I can't seem to route an internal Di2 cable around the bar drops.
Can anyone confirm if this is possible or are the internal routing blocked in the drops and I am waisting my time....
LeMomo seems to have done it in the picture he attached.
The bike build has come to a grinding halt :cry:
