Hi,

Anyone had any experience with the Williams Elan CCS (carbon) bars or the ACS (alu.) stem? They both appear to be light and reasonably priced and l like the looks.

Thanks. :beerchug:

I use the Elan CCS Handlebars (as of last week).
It is fantastic. It is light (~184g in 42cm). It is stiff. It is fairly well priced. Shipping was quick.
I removed the graphics & logos.

What specifically do you need to know? :)

I also have the Elan bars. Overall, I'm satisfied with them. They're light and stiff enough, but I'm not a huge fan of the bend. The drops almost sort of flare inwards. I own Williams wheels, cages, bars, and stem. All of his stuff is very good for the price.

In have been running the CCS bar for a couple months. Nice light stiff bar. The tops have a great shape. I have bigger hands and the bar is comfortable . I'm running the ccs stem also. Stiffer then the kcnc it replaced . I'm not crazy about the logos though. They will be gone next time I wrap the bars. Running the alloy version on another bike. Again a solid product.
