Hello Berk
I've a MCFK handlebar + Ritchey Superlogic Stem.
What will your price for merging the two together in Ud finish matt carbon, no logos. (all logos on my bike that can be taken are off)
Have you seen calfee with K-edge garmin support, will you be able to do the same? That's is what I'm looking for.
Best regards and keep up the good work it looks great.
PM PLEASE or email me: nunosergiomoreirapires@gmail.com

@elfuinha
Hi, I'll send you an email.

Otherwise regarding the Garmin support - I get already quite a lot questions if I'll make it with carbon, but it wouldn't make sense because the small parts for the "clamping mechanism" if you know what I mean. The procedure and the tools for it would be just too expensive, that's also why I didn't even made it for myself.

I am really interested in your bar combos now. Having you mate a stem to my Vuka Sprints, with a Garmin mount would be the perfect compliment to my saddle/post combo. This is so awesome! I like what Calfee did with the K-Edge, but in my opinion it would of been a lot better if it was center mounted to the stem, and symmetrical. It looks kinda stupid mounting onto the side like that. I realize why they did it, so they wouldn't have to produce their own mount, and just used an already available. I am sure Jure can come up with something better.

I just saw this on the new Zipp Vuka Stealth. This mount is the way the Garmin mount should be.

Yeah, how is that coming? I noticed we aren't friends on FB anymore so I haven't seen any updates? :(

Hi guys, I'm glad that you like it :)
Otherwise I'll see, the mount on that Zipp bar is really nice, probably I could get only that part and mount it under the stem? Otherwise I could use the original plastic mount and laminate it on a plate...that would be an option. Or I can ask a friend of mine who works on a CNC machine, maybe he could help me, I woul donly neew to draw/design it.. I also have a Garmin bike computer so it would be interesting also for me, I'll think about it and see what could be done, otherwise any idea is more than welcome!

A new special saddle/seatpost combo with "gloss Twill saddle" and "UD matte seatpost" with black decals.

I really like how the Twill/UD and gloss/matte combination turned out, it looks really interesting in real :)

Very well done Jure!!

UD finish looks great, reminds me of the finish of Ritchey WCS aluminium components :smartass: :beerchug:
