    I'm a road newb and I need a new stem. 100mm is too short and 120 is too long. There are some great deals on carbon bars out there, and my current bars don't have ports for cables, so they're kind of uncomfortable under my hands.

    I've been pretty interested in the deda 35mm setup as it should limit the flex I feel in virtually all of the road bars I've tried. I was scared of the first set of road bars I ever had, some ultralight alloy jobbers. 35mm carbon jams should solve that.

    Any input? I can get easton carbon slx90 and a generic stem for roughly the same price as deda carbon 35s.

    100 to 120mm? That looks just about right, this bike should be a perfect fit for you!

    I test rode one of those, very strange but it wasn't bad. I want to get one and mod it so I can take it to the trails.
