For clarity - is that cable routing pathway supposed to be covered (read: a tube not a channel) and material was removed to open it up? I see pics of new bars that seem to show some with open channels, some with closed.

I'm not really sure if you call it internal cable routing, but if you see the last picture,I removed maybe 2.5" of flat carbon covering that sunken channel of the handlebar. main reason i removed it is for the ease of removing the handle bar without removing all the brake and derraileur cables.

You removed carbon? Can you explain why it's not dangerous to use the bars after modification? I want to give the benefit of the doubt that you are a Deda carbon engineer with the plans an the stress test data to know that such a structural change won't result in losing teeth. But even so, why not advertise that clearly in the initial post? I'm not looking to mess with your sale, but there's some explaining to do here.

I see your concern , I revised my post and I wish I could have taken a before and after of what I've removed. and No I'm not even close an Engineer. the piece I removed is not what holding the whole entire bar, the only reason Im selling this is I switched to a wider bar same as the one above and also removed that flat carbon tab where you insert the cable housing.

Maybe this gives a sense of the before?

The first generation of Superleggera were like this - moulded recess for the cables.

The second generation have internal routing (I know because I have both the old and the new designs).

Whilst I'd agree the 'tabs' the OP refers to are probably not load bearing, I'm not sure it wouldn't potentially compromise the structural integrity of the bars - the carbon wrap is probably designed as a complete section (these are light and quite flexy bars).

I do agree with the OP that the current design with internal routing is definitely a pain compared to the original design - and I think they're fantastic bars, love the shape and the weight and the flex is only in the drops.

Thanks Ben i was going to post that picture, that exactly what i removed. I still have the same bar Tab removed on my Colnago C60.

someone else was selling same bars with a crack on that tab so apparently that tab is pretty fragile. It is probably fine that said, I am sure a lot of people won't feel confortable ridding it but you are upfront about it and the price also reflects this

Too bad Raoul Luescher is not a paceliner. His opinion would be helpful. http://instagram.com/luescher_teknik
