Cable grooves front and back to accommodate Campy ergo shifter cables and brake cables. I'm using the Newton stem/bar combo and it is a nice set-up. Expensive, but very nice stuff.

yes, the newton bar is grooved. i use the bar/stem combo on both of my bikes, and they're very light and stiff. the only dislike is that they aren't more of a shallow drop. i would also forego the ergo bend for a more traditional sweep. overall, you'll be pleased.

How long have you been using the Newton? I've been on it three months and had the same initial reaction that you did about the drop and the ergo bend. However, after adjusting to it, I actually like it a lot better than my previous bar with a bigger drop and "more traditional sweep." I actually considered swapping the bar out for about the first month. Now, I'm very happy that I stuck with the Newton combo.
