Anybody had any experience with the Deda Magic Stem and Bar?

I bought a Klein last year and want to swap out the Icon stuff for the Deda Magic. I have read some really negative stuff about the Deda Newton. Does that applie to the Magic as well?

Thanks in advance for the info.

I'm looking at doing the sameAndy

I've been using that combo on my Giant TCR-1. It dropped weight from the Cinelli Groove/Altera combo that came stock with the bike and IMHO looks much better. It's heavier than the Newton but I feel that it is much stiffer and I have had no problems with the stem or handlebar getting loose. I like the feel and reach of the bars, it is very comfortable in the drops. I use a sigma sport computer, I had to use two bands to secure it on the bar, but another teammate got one to hold it on his Magic bar. I highly recommend this bar and stem..

Ride on!!!!
