Can't make my mind up on this one. The bars are in the same position with both stems as the stem sticker on the Ti stem lifts the bars to the same position. Believe it or not the stems are both 140mm reach. Whats the opinions then?

Probably Syncros for a bit of contrast, & the chunkier welds match! What seatpost have you got though??

OT: What do you think of those tyres (fire xc pros or something aren't they?)?

Well spotted, only stuck the tyres on for a test, normally run Porcs. The Seat pin is a polished Use Ti with red top clamp, I have the option of changing to some polished flat O deg bend Ti bars. I will swap the top cap for a red one shortly!
