does anyone have these? If so do you like them. I like the little aero extensions, and they look kind of cool to. And are they worth the high price tag. Any experieneces or thoughts would be great.
thanks

I tried some on a static set up at a show and would say that much like Spinaccis are not really intended for prolonged riding - the fact that they have no arm pads to even provide some sort of grip. The bar angle is fairly shallow and not really far enough forward. Furthermore, unlike Cinelli's RAM, they have no internal cable routing - a real pain, particularly for Campag users. If you like the integrated carbon bar thing, go for the Cinellis, which look better in my opinion. If you want a light, go faster add-on bar, the Deda Black clip is just about the best option going - easy to fit and far more useful than the Synapsi's too short extension.
