Very nice Steff. You could cut some of the end of the bars. They seem very long. Thatll save some weight.

What do you think about it ?

It needs it's own post. I see a lot of WW goodies on there. :beerchug:

Your English is fine. Don't worry about it.

agree with gumgardner about that Cervélo, looks really light.

But sad that the handlebar was so "heavy". Nordischer Rahmenbaustem?

Ordered from Dulight?

Personally I would not cut the ends of the HB as it is meant to provide two positions in the drops: one slanted so you can use the brakes and shifters and the one at the end of the bar more horizontal so you can be more relaxed while still in the drops.

The shape of the bar is actually designed by grandmaster and holder of about 40 patents, Francois Kerautret. It was copied by ITM first then Syntace and now MCFK.

Ciao, ;)

Hi,

LOL. I know you would. :lol:

BTW, AFAIK they don't have a stem as yet but they do have another new product which may be of interest to some:

Ciao, ;)

Hi,

You can order straight from the manufacturer using a form you need to fill in:

http://www.mcfk.de/index.php (See: "Bestellung")

Or from this shop:

http://www.dulight.fr/ (I think the owner is British)

Ciao, ;)

I'm quite a big fan of MCFK, but the weight of these bars for that price is not very impressive. I have some Zipp SLs that weight 167g.

The shape is darn ugly too...
