I saw the Velo News, Zinn review and it wasn't much use. Can anyone offer some opinions on the Deda Magic stem and bars?

Since no one else has replyed here is my .02 euros, for what it's worth!

I use both Deda Magic bars and stems on my trek 2300 and I have to say I really like them. The bars don't flex when I'm out of the saddle and I'm not light (202lb). The stem is real stiff. As for weights the Magic and Millinimum Over stems weigh about the same, but Magic bars a lighter.

One last point is looks, the the "chuncky" nature of the Magic doesn't suit ever bike, looks good on my trek or AG2R's Decathlons but would be out of place on a slim sleek Seven.

It can also be fun to get a computer to fit on the centre bulge.

Hope this is of some use to you.
