    Where can I buy a real one?

    Anybody know a repudable place I can buy a FSA K-Force 31.8 Carbon riser bar on line?
    Anyone bought a real one online? There are a lot of fakes on eBay and other online sellers. Yes i could do the LBS, but they are in winter operations selling skiis, so they will only special order, plus I dont want to pay taxes.
    Thanks
    Adios,

    Lots of kids tell me they want to be firefighters when they grow up, I tell them they can't do both!

    I would be surprised if the usual online bike shops didn't have it.

    If not...

    Yeah found 4 fakes in Google shopping. Apparently this is the most fake produced bar on the market.

    Yep, full MSRP OR $5 over, plus $13 shipping. No doubt in my mind they are legit, but was hoping to find a deal on real!

    not to be too parental but man you guys/girls HAVE to support your lbs. yeah, you'll save $7.13 in taxes and maybe $10 off the price but is that worth helping to push the lbs out of bidniz? For all of the freebies I get I'll gladly do my best to keep them around.

    To be fair, I haven't exactly received a "great" vibe from the shops in Breck I've been to but they likely deal with more idiots then your avg shop and just assume the worst (contrast that with the crew at OTE in Fruita - I don't know how they do it). Go talk to Ciro at Pedal Power in Avon. He'll hook you up right.

    Special order with tax at the LBS is sounding better.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    I agree with the other posts. Support the local shop. You'll know that it's 100% genuine since they are ordering either direct or from an authorized distributor. You'd be surprised, a lot will price match or at least try. You just gotta ask.

    Got to agree with that. Wait until the big guy institutes an internet tax. You can count that it's coming.

    No we don't.

    Ask biker bob. You'll get a great deal and be supporting a LBS. Not your LBS but an LBS nonetheless.

    I agree. I'm surprised more people flat out don't bother trying the honest approach.
    I went to my local LBS and basically said, how do you feel about me coming to you with an internet price and seeing how close you can come.

    He said he would always like me to give him a chance first. So far I got an steal on my TBc and the parts I've order have been cheaper or only a few dollars more than online.

    Win Win for both. I help him make sales, he's there when I need something, like service.

    Universal also does 15% off for orders over $300. If it is small stuff then I usally group up an order with a few friends to hit $300.

    LBS wasn't interested in even coming close. Got mine at Pricepoint for $129.
