I'm changing to an aluminum oversized bar and stem and was wondering if anyone had an opinion on what might be the stiffest of the following bars and stems: Bontrager - Deda - Oval Concepts - Pro Vibe or Ritchey. Let me know any feedback that you might have.
Why are you changing to an OS bar and stem? Just curious because I've recently read that the purported increase in stiffness isn't necessarily true. I've been very happy with my Deda 215 (26.0) bars and Ritchey WCS stem. I also have a longer Syntace stem which I also like a lot (trying to decide which length is better for me) - if they flex, it's lost on me.
