Stem: Cinelli XA (Nothing is more beautiful or functional)

Bars: I swear by the Cinelli 66 bars. I have large hands, and the deep drops are perfect. I have the Cinelli Altera's on my new bike, and I finding them to be quite comfortable.

Tires: I have ridden Vittoria's for years. No they don't last as long as other tires, and they get nicked up easily, but they ride so sweet and fast!! The Open Corsa CX TT rides almost as nice as the Corsa CX tubular.

My experience, FWIW.

I now have 1737 miles on my Open Corsa CX tires, with no flats or even nicks! I agree, they're a sweet riding tire.
I know, I've just tempted fate...

The rubber compounds Vittoria is using must surely be getting better. I remember my first pair of Open Corsa's, when they first came out, got shreaded by the road in nearly no time. I must report my current pair have not a single nick on them (still low miles). No comment on the flats (I'm not going to jinx myself).
