id probably try the lupina padded 132 first! i think a cool thing would be colors for that little bridge piece to differentiate your product. Id take a small orange bit there personally, but ive seen them do flags and such too.

I thought of that too. He can do orange for you if you'd like. Special orders take a few days for them to complete.
I have the padded in 132 on its way. Send me an email at info@elitevelosolutions.com when you're ready and I'll take care of you.

Speaking of orange....more than a little, but doable

I like what he did here. perhaps in red, white, and blue

Thanks for noticing. A bit wider platform compared to Berk's traditional 132/150mm, leaning toward more comfort without a significant weight penalty.

Bar/stem combo

Thanks to all who have reached out concerning Berk's bar/stem combo.

For those thinking about pulling the trigger and quoting an email from Jure this afternoon:
"The handlebars have at this moment unreasonable long production time as we are completely full with them and it may take around 8 weeks to finish one."
