Got a tracking number last week. Expected delivery is 23rd November, so we'll see if that is accurate. No big deal if not, give or take a few days.

The bar has no flare, 40cm c-c. Flat tops are less pronounced than on Ergonova, drop shape is very similar. Installation manual explicitly limits torque for Extralite stems, lol.

Have you had a chance to evaluate things like stiffness and so on, are yours drilled for DI2? Mine have just cleared customs so I would expect delivery early next week................

Looks like we all ordered around the same time, according to Damia mine should be shipping next week. Please post a pic if you can and let us know about stiffness etc...

Give it the old juice and let me know the stiffness vs ergonova. We are doing the exact same swap. :-)

Sorry, but since it's winter over here already, not going to happen until April. It's up to you guys to evaluate stiffness and other stuff :D Also, mine's not drilled, I run mechanical shifting.

Specifically, what does it say about Extralite stems? I have one that I would like to pair with this bar. However, I have had issues getting the Extralite to be creak free at the specified torque with other bars....

It says to torque Extralite stem faceplate bolts only up to 3nm. I plan to pair the bar with Hyperstem too, btw.

Winter here also. Grab the bars by the drops and do the highly scientific “flex-o-meter” and push them together, then apart. Now repeat with the 3t aeronovas (don’t bother to unmount). Is the flex more, less, same?

My bar is on order, but i am curious.

Both bars feel about the same, some millimeters of give.

How much cost for the seat post clamp / collar?

And how tall is the clamping portion (as my frame has a limited range of clamp heights that will work)

Thanks

The clamp was 57.02 € without VAT, it's 12.4mm tall. If that's too much for your frame, I'd ask Damia about customization, he accepted to make a 32mm clamp for me.
