Hi!

I just took delivery of a Giant Defy Advanced Pro 0 in Medium. Unfortunately it comes with a 42cm bar. I had been using a Deda Superzero 38cm on my Canyon Ultimate.

I'd like to substitute the bars for another 38cm bar... 40cm c-c is the max I could live with. I have not real objection to another Giant D-Fuse bar other than it doesn't come in 38cm (min is 40cm).

The bar has to have full compatibility with Di2 internal wiring, the sort that has a hole in the bar that feeds into the stem and bar end junction box in order to keep the original cabel routing. Aero shape is a nice to have too.

So far the only two bars that I know meet these criteria are the Giant D-Fuse and the Pro Aero Vibe. Both are 40cm c-c in their smallest size.

Any other suggestions?
Thanks in advance!

Don't have any experience with it as I also use the Superzero, but this is a beautiful bar that fits your requirements:

Wiggle has the Prime Primavera carbon bar in 38cm - not very expensive and big holes to feed the cables through.

With similar requirements, I also landed on a Pro Vibe Aero and it's been an awesome bar. I recently picked up a 3T Superergo LTD to cover the same bases - except exchanging aero for a light bar. It also seems very nice.

I just got the 3T Superergo LTD. Amazing bars! They seem to be fully di2 compatible (no blockage around shifter clamp area so barend junction will work).

I can second the 3T Superergo. It comes in a 38, but is not an aero / flat top style. Below are photos

On my Cervelo I have the Enve Aero SES which has internal routing also. That bar is a little odd though the way it is measured. I have the size 42 which is at the drops. At the hoods it's about 37mm C-C.

If you got the size 40 .. it would be a 35 at the hoods. That's like girly size :lol:

Thanks for the suggestions, guys!

The Superergo is nice as is the Enve... I'm just not positive they do have a hole in the middle section of the bar to pass the Di2 cables into the stem as the Giant stem is designed to.

The Primavera and the Aero Vibe do have this hole. Decisions, decisions...

Thanks again!

I can confirm that the Superergo does not have a hole in the center of the clamp area.
