The 120 mm length extralite works fine for me. Even though I have a torque wrench At home I went to the lbs to have it installed

I've had some bar slippage with the MCFK.. despite using tacx carbon paste. Took everything apart and put more sandy paste everywhere...but have not had a chance to retest. Bar never slipped when I was using a ritchey streem II, but slipped with my Easton EC70 AX.

I rode the mcfk only for a short while before selling it. Compared to the hyperstem I honestly couldn't tell a difference. No bar slippage on the mcfk. I wanted a lower stack so I went with the ax. I have you say the ax feels noticeably stiffer then the mcfk. Front end doesn't feel as soft. Plus aesthetically the ax system looks great with a low stack and overall smaller shape.
