    Chinese carbon handlebars, stem and seatpost

    Hi

    Like you see in the title im interested in swapping out these parts to new ones.
    I was looking at Chinese carbon parts, they are quite (a lot!) bit cheaper, i can choose all three of chinese parts, or save up some more and just get 1 cheapest FSA or Ritchey carbon part.
    Has anyone ever had any experience with any of these Chinese parts, i would really appreciate any comments!

    Thanks!

    From what companies? Chinese may be a bit too generic for any real help.

    Bought a Chinese seat post once. Lasted less than 20 feet. $80 down the drain.

    Chinese parts range in quality from really good to not even worth hanging on the wall.
    Like stated, it is just too generic of a term.

    Hylix Carbon Offset Seatpost 30 9 400mm 245G for Road MTB Bike Setback | eBay

    I have not bought one of these but I spend a LOT of time scanning Ebay for parts and would probably get this if I needed carbon and didn't want to spend a ton of cash.

    I use the Hong-Fu seatposts, bars and stems. (Handlebar,Products)

    Light, cheap and to date durable. Some serious miles with some heavy guys and terrains and no issues what so ever. I'm talking 20 plus bikes with this stuff fitted.

    Use carbon paste and a torque wrench and don't over tighten.

    Thanks for answering. If you say no problems with Hong-Fu i will look into them.

    But does anyone have any experience with the "company named" Carbon parts?
    Like FSA, Ritchey or Bontrager? Its not that i MUST have named parts, but it will look a lot better.

    I have a seatpost and stem from here. http://www.carboncycles.cc/index.php

    I have been using them regularly since late '11 with no issues at all.

    The eBay Hylix stuff is good, but the one bolt seatpost design sucks. The two bolt clamp works great.
