Cyclingnews and other online sites are plastered with adverts for the new FSA electronic groupset K-Force WE but there seems not much interest here. Has anyone used it or is intending to?

I won't be, as it happens, as I'm liking EPS.

Off topic for pure road, but i wonder how it holds up against competition riding gravel, mud and even winter.
Minus for Sram, FD clearance allows maximum 35mm tires.
This might be further limited pending on rims inner width.

Is it lighter than the SRAM eTap system (shifters + derailleurs) ? That's the question.

Actual weights would be nice... and none of that "well we're including the cranks and chain and other sht" in the weights, because anyone who actually gives a crap about the mass of their bikes is unlikely to just default to the brand-standard without considering, and weighing, other options.

I've used it but not for any extended period of time. First impressions were positive, but will take a wait and see approach.

I spoke with FSA about availability just the other day and was told that they have a very limited shipment coming Sept which is already allocated to OEM. Aftermarket won't be until Nov. So still a few months before anyone really gets to put some miles on it.

I find it very rare that is not being used in the Tour de France (The best showcase....) When the group is ready for months? And it was said that the team Cofidis and some other but would use it....................
