    You might want to search for vendors outside of Amazon.com => https://www.google.com/#q=salsa+pro+...s=vw:l,p_ord:P
    Lots of vendors carry the Salsa Moto 3 stems.

    Good luck.
    Cheers,

    Thanks for that. I googled it with little results, but never thought to clip the shopping tab.

    Everything arrived yesterday and I was able to take off the bar-end shifters, the brakes, and the old stem and handlebars. It was remarkably easy. I got as far as putting the new stem and bars on before valentine's festivities pulled me away. today i'll put the brakes an shifters back on, and wrap, and hopefully go for a ride to test it out.

    Congrats and have fun. I think you'll like the FSA Omega bars. I have a set - they're like the FSA Wing bars without the flat tops. The compact bend makes the drops more useful. I also have a set of Salsa Bell Lap bars, and I like the way they flare, but the drops don't work well for me.

    success! went for a ride today and definitely noticed a difference. much more comfortable in the drops, and i can now reach the shifters without leaning over even more.
    thanks for the input everyone. it wasn't very hard, like y'all said.

    Nice, I switched out my stem and bars too last week and my back stopped hurting.
