Ed does make some great steering stems. But, the anti-vibe bar clamp is made by George at Precision Racing. Their shops are close together so Ed does offer George's products on his site.

I have a similar set-up. See signature. I am not sure about the flexx bars, but the Easton taper bars will not allow for installation of ergo? bark busters, because they are..... tapered. (I have a set of new ones in black for sale.)

The stock bars have an aggressive rise to them. Most aftermarket are gonna have a much more mild rise. Even with my +2 stem, the ride height of the grips is about .5" lower than stock. I am 6' and I now wish I had a little more rise on my handle bars, but overall it feels good.

Given those choices I'd go Big 3 all the way!

It's a case of "Big 3" versus the "Comfy 3". Big 3 will get you there faster but comfy 3 will kinda like "viagra" , you get to ride longer. I would change one item on you're list and that's the Houser stem. If you are running stock length shocks then go for a Teixeira Tech stem. I own both the Houser and Ed's (Teixeira) stems and have issues with the Houser. They kinda bind the steering ball joints at max height.

I was gonna suggest the very same thing... except I haven't tried the Houser stem to be able to compare the 2. However, I know Ed and know his stem is top notch. If you end up ordering Ed's stem, tell him I referred you... won't get you a discount or anything... but may get ME a discount later. :hey:
