that's why we drink it here
The "Pointless" :rolleyes:

PS - But its still cooler than anything I've ever machined...
Beg to differ, here's why:
The bar/stem interface is about 7in wide instead of 2" which reduces the force on this junction, allowing the following things.
-Thinner wall tubing on the bars.
-Small, light stems that won't snap.
-Increased stiffness without adding weight.
Bars don't need aligning with the wheel.
Bar height is adjustable without swapping spacers around. If you were so inclined you could even run it under the crown. (not that I think this is a particularly good idea)

Can you post a picture of the "spacers"? I'm struggling to understand how the bar height is adjustable (going higher).

So what does it weigh?
