|I almost cringe looking at them now.|
Felt had them in stock and soon it was on its way from California. IOS got them in a week later, then the following week I took my bike in, as they needed a few days to get it all done.

|The basebar (also DI2 compatible)|
|The extensions are light as air|
|Lots of accessories|

I had Good Friday off so I got in a nice 40M ride after I dropped the kids off at Grandma's to color Easter eggs. My arms and shoulders were really sore after that. I took the carbon computer mount piece off and rotated the extensions inward. This seemed to help a lot on my rides on Saturday and Sunday.
|Very Clean Front|
I didn't think that I would notice the width (39cm vs 42cm before) but on that first ride climbing the hill to get out of my neighborhood, I noticed it right away. After a couple of rides however, it now feels normal.
|Cabling looks cleaner in Black|
I was able to get my Speedfil A2 rigged up between the bars, and zip tied my Garmin mount up by my hands.
Whether it was the placebo affect or not, I sliced through the wind on a particularly windy ride on Sunday to average 21.5 for the whole ride (windy rides usually kick my butt). All in all the bars are just awesome. They look great, they are super light (595g), super aero, narrow, and easy to adjust. The 2 bolt design makes it easy. In the immortal words of James "Mr. Cervelo" Haycraft, "The bars are sick, I'm really jealous".
My plan is to ride them for a while, then look at lowering them some more once I get good and used to the height. Now, I am a "made" member of the Felt Mafia. So watch out, Green Lightning just got a little faster!
