I just got my new World Cycling Productions catalogue and spied this new chi chi. It looks to be a carbon fiber version of the Integralter stem/bar combo albeit more svelte and sexy looking. Get this: claimed weight 320 grms :). Price $370 bones :(.

My eyebrow is cocked and I am intrigued.

but $370 for a bar and stem??? Whoa! Too much. For just a few more dollars, you can buy a really 'chi chi' wheelset - but if you've got it all and just want a little more....go for it....
Just a question...MikeC

You mentioned World Cycling Productions and your screen name is 9WorCP, as in 9Wor(ld)C(ycling)P(roductions).
Any connection?
Hmmm. . . makes sense.9WorCP

Interesting extrapolation. Cryptologist in your spare time? Pretty good guess. Actually I'm a NYC cyclist and you're most likely to catch me on highway 9W or C(entral)P(ark). Definitely not an interloping marketer.

All this talk about Airborne "review" marketing must be getting me paranoid!
By the way, nobody else on the planet has any information about the Cinelli Ram...including Cinelli's Web site! I did both a HotBot and Google search, and came up with zero each time.
I'm looking for a stem and a bar for a new bike, and while the price is pretty outrageous, I'd like to check it out at least.
There's a picture at World Cycling.9WorCP

I am NOT trying to funnel people into their website. It's just that there's a picture there.

I received the catalog just now too. $360 bux, actually. So, your sponsor will pay for this item, right?
