So I've got a nice Schmolke TLO bar and can't make up my mind about the stem.
I've narrowed down between the AX Lightness Rigid and the MCFK.
Both nice, the AX is lighter and more expensive, but at this point I'll let the look factor be the deciding factor.
So, which one will look better in your opinion?
Thank you!

You narrowed it down to 2 choices but now you can't make up your mind . . . . . :roll:


Buy a Goldfish, when it swims to the right you get the MCFK, when it swims to the left you take the AX.

:wink:

Uno is the realworld solution to a 1st World problem.
There are a number of worthwhile similar solutions to the handlebars too.
Less is more.

1st world can afford nicer looking stems than Uno

Can't seem to make up my mind if I like the THM, the front just looks weird.
Do like the MCKF though.

MCFK seems to be the most appreciated... still tempted by the AX which is 10 grams lighter!

We all ask ourselves these questions now and then. Ultimately can you be happy with your 2nd choice? It seems like you want someone to convince you to buy the AX, so I'll say "do it"! Mine has been fine...imo looks great and no issues whatsoever with function/flex at my 79-80kg.
