    Thumbs up FSA K-Force Handlebar for $139.98 with free shipping

    I just bought an FSA K Force handlebar this morning for $139.98 at chainreactioncycles. At the time, all of the sizes have the same price so I jumped on the 42 right away. But now i'm not sure if they are still on sale.

    I have been riding this bar for 2 years now. I love it. It has a little flex ( I like to sprint).
    But it does kill some of the road buzz through the bars. For this price it is a nice upgrade.
    Good Luck

    i have a k-wing (that i will be selling on ebay very soon) on my bike but i don't like the reach - it's far for me and i already have a short stem - so I want to try the kforce. I hope it works for me. I will post a picture when i get a chance.

    I'm in the exact same boat Red. I currently use the original Carbon K-Wing and they're like 90-95mm reach and 145mm drop. I'm looking for something around 80/130.

    I love the flat top on the K-Wing's though, and I like the angular drop more than the new "compact" rounded drop....

    i picked up my bike this afternoon and took it for a quick spin. the k-force i got has a 150mm drop so i turned the bar a little to raise the downbar higher.

    Whoa, 150mm drop? Thats more than the K-wing's. Doesn't that defeat your attempt to go more compact?

    the downbar is lower than the k-wings but the reach on the shifters is perfect. i will ride tomorrow and saturday, hopefully i will get use to it eventually.

    Thumbs up It's a keeper!

    i am keeping my handlebar. after taking several laps at the rosebowl, i feel ok even when my hands are on the downbar. i thought having a lower downbar is going to be a big deal but to me it wasn't. i took some pictures with my cellphone. the quality is not that good though.
