First, let me apologize for not posting in a while. I've been a little busy with the December birth of my second son and all... I'm sure you'll forgive me!
So, I've been looking for some time to replace the Ritchey WCS stem and WCS Carbon handlebar that I've been riding on my Waterford with something aluminum and significantly stiffer. The bar is not bad, but the stem is a little twisty. When I went to Interbike this past September, Shimano's Benelux component division; PRO, were offering a killer industry deal on their Vibe 7S series which happened to be the bar/stem combo at the top of my list. I just had to bite!
