NEED HELP W/ STEM, BAR, POST(3 posts)

NEED HELP W/ STEM, BAR, POSTfredstaple
Oct 23, 2003 4:09 AM
I am purchasing my first road bike in 21 years. I do not race and having the lightest parts is not a concern. Anyone help me to choose the Post, Stem and Bar? Looking for something that will add comfort to my ride. Is there one that is the must have product like the Chris King of headsets.

I am kind of leaning towards an Easton post (EC 70 or 90).
A Easton EC 90 or EA 70 bar

For the stem looking at Easton, 3T Forgie, Thompson and Ritchey, totally confused here. thanks for all your help.
I live in Japan and get be very interactive with posts. regards, fred

Nitto. EXCELLENT quality. Local to you. No racerboy marketing.

I can recommend any that you just mentioned. But, appearance counts too. So my last purchase was ITM Four seatpost, stem and bar. All the same sandblast (matt) black, light and strong, straightforward looks.

I would say a Campy ti seatpost (nice, strong, easy adjustment, good looks) has to go with a ti stem. But which one??
