    Got mine last night! They are the shiny finish, shaving 100g for $70 isn't bad!

    100g? Really? Looked like a slightly narrower and more gaudy alternative to the Easton EC70 to me. Not to mention RaceFace carbon has a rep for not having much vibration damping, compared to the competition.

    Yea, I've been running the same cheap Sette bars for my last three bikes... These will certainly provide a smoother ride, and save some weight to boot!

    They have a great price on the matching seat post! I paid close to 100 for mine. Very noticeable difference on my aluminum hardtail from an aluminum post.
