... put the price aside for a moment... and look at it from a form/function/aesthetics POV...

http://www.stellaazzurra.com/

Does anyone have a Stella Azzurra Tirreno... or considering the purchase (looking at the FSA K Wing along with this bar)?

how much will you be paying for this?
... dunno...Akirasho

... haven't resourced all available outlets... but note that CC has it for $400 USD... which is why, at least for the moment, I wanna put price on the back burner.

But wait...PMC

Chuck has more 44s on order. The lead time is 60 days on those particular bars so expect more 44s by early January.

ok. now i'm going to have a heck of a time deciding between those bars and ones made by Thorius. i can actually get the Thorius for the exact same price.
... do you have a link for Thorius and your supplier?? (nm)Akirasho

Which bars?CritLover

I wasn't sure which Thorius bar you were referring to. The one piece looked like the only one that was as wide as the Stella Azzura. The other Palm models, didn't seem to be that wide. Well, actually, one shot make the carbons look wide, the other shot made them look like a standard oversize bar.

I just ordered the FSA WK-Wing, but would have opted for the Tirreno if they made it in a 42cm o-o.

For this year, they already make the aluminum version ('Profi Ala') in my size. Until then, I can only lust. ...and to answer your question: ABSOLUTELY!! Nothing has more style than SA.
Do these things use bar tape?mainframe
