Hello, I’m new in WW
I bought a really good condition second hand ax lightness frame and fork
I plan to build it up with the group set/wheels from my current bike-sram red and Reynolds

My question

My current stem( 3t arx ltd) look bulky and huge for the bike. Any recommendation for a 100mm 6 degree stem that will look good with ax lightness. I can’t afford Mcfk....

Can't go wrong with Kalloy Uno. Should be around 100g and $25-$35. Remove decals with nail varnish remover.

It's the matte with white accents i guess?
You could get just about anything IMO. Why not just get a good alu stem?
Ritchey or the previous 3T Arx II in black (team stealth)

I had Vial EVO D previous to my EVO Race. If you think that 3T stem is bulky, you'd hate the Easton stem i have currently :lol:
Honestly, the Easton stem is great, but i also look for a stem that matches better.

I like the look of Cinelli Neos although has a litlle red colour, and Specialized Sworks. both aluminium. Deda Superleggera has 36 mms of stack height, nice too.
And in carbon Lightweight stem is 223 euros.

I'm actually bought the 3t team stealth with a fraction of 3t Ltd arx!! Look so much better.

My specialized aerofly bar look totally out of place. Any suggestion for 40cm handlebar?

How about 27.2mm seatpost with 20mm set back.

Thanks
