I think FSA makes the Vision brand. If so, I think you could move the Metreon 5D bar fairly easily at the right price

Their bars are also pretty good IMO.

Have to agree with this. Subcompacts are in demand I think. Only problem is fsa cranks are not generally high value, unless it's rare so if you don't choose wisely you might not get nearly as much back as you'd expect.

30/46 sounds awesome though. What a climber, and low weight aswell.

am interested in how the carbon versions compare to the alloy, the FSA Energy Compact are stiff in my opinion - and stiff enough for many in the peloton. I know Nibali and a few others use the carbon version called FSA K Force. They also do an ultralight version.

the Energy Compact is the perfect shape for me, long drops, good bend, oval tops.
