In order to achieve correct postion on my bike I am considering the FSA K Force carbon fiber stem. Does any body have any feed back on this stem. I am a big rider doing lots of hills. The K force is the only 73 degree 31.8 stem Ihave been able to locate anybody hacve any other ideas? thanks

:welcome:
The Ritchey WCS 73 degree stem is available in 25.8, but I don't think it comes in 31.8. I've not tried K-Force. 73 stems are indeed rare.

You might also consider the LOOK Ergostem. Infinitly adjustable.

Will also add about 250g to your bike, and if your strong will twist like wet spagetti. After saying this, they are the best thing for setting up a new bike or a TT bike for the first time (or whenever the UCI changes the rules) and then get a solid stem.

Oval Concepts also make a 73 stem, but again only in 26.0, not 31.8.
