Hi!

I'm in the process of replacing weighty stock components on a Bike I bought new last year...
I am after recommendations for modern seat posts, stems and handlebars, so anything light, good quality and reasonably priced please...
I'm not too familiar with modern brands, so just thought I'd seek the advice of you guys.
Cheers in advance!!

A picture of the bike would help. I'd look at British brands first. USE, Hope

Road or MTB?

The best seatposts and stems are made by Thomson, not cheap but light and very durable. Seatposts and sems is all they do.

For road bars Cinelli make a good ange as do FSA. For Road, FSA and Raceface make a good range.

You will have to let us know budget and what bike you have/riding style to get proper recomendations.
