Concerned about purchaing Ax Lightness Hera bar over their Poseindon Bar. I just feel since its light, they shaved of some material on their bar. It jepordizes strength.

I wouldn't buy one of their forks.....but their bars are fine as far as I'm aware.

Of course they did. Also depends on length I would say. Got a 60cm Poseidon and it's really nice, feels better than the 58cm Extralite bar I had before.

Is anyone running the MCFK bars? I really want to try their sweep bar but can't find any reviews.

I was about to pull the trigger on a MCFK h. bars, but stumbled upon the Mt. Zoom carbon h. bars, weight listed at 116 grams. Mine came in at 106 grams, at 80 brit pounds. Saved me a lot of money... :D

Got a little bit cross eyed while looking at the weighing scale, sorry :oops: :mrgreen: .... It wasnt 106 grams, but 109 grams, still really light for 640mm width carbon h. bars.
