That's pretty much it really. I think I'd rather not deal with working my handlebars through a old style closed clamp and ruin my tape job every time I have to work on them. Thanks for the help.

came on that mercier kilo tt

IMO, the 3T Mutant Classic and the Cinelli Frog are the two not ugly choices.
Yeah, I have a crap Zoom stem right now with the pop-top front. I believe Deda makes one as well that looks decent.

Cheap-a-roo (http://www.nashbar.com/profile.cfm?category=119&subcategory=1186&brand=&sku=6216&storetype=&estoreid=&pagename=) if you don't mind mountain and/or black components on your ride.

I have the deda murex stem. It's just what you're looking for.
Try to stick to the shorter lengths though as it's a bit on the flexy side. Then again I run the 140mm and I weigh 220. I guess anything under those conditions would flex.

i also have the deda murex, it will probably flex if you are heavy...its pointy too
