    Carbon Overload

    Is it possible to use too much carbon?

    Not at all!

    I have been bitten by the Mojo. I decided yesterday to build up one. I was just looking at that stem on Bontrager's website only two minutes ago. $250! Ouch! It hurts so good.

    Go carbon

    You'll get no complaints from me.

    Had I found a deal, I would have gone with the same stem.

    Looks great.

    Go Mojo!

    I've bid on a couple stems like that but haven't got one, yet.
    A bicycle will take you to fantastic places....if you let it.

    That is awesome!

    I've got a carbon riser, seatpost and crankset but decided to go for the X4 stem.

    Now if only I could find some aftermarket levers/blades for my XT hydraulics...

    Its funny I am looking to build up a painted mojo and I plan to use carbon bars and post but these items from easton don't have the typical appearance of carbon. So I am going to end up with a full carbon bike and carbon bars and seatpost and you won't be able to tell at all by looking at it. The irony...

    Definitely carbon looks real nice, but I prefer a Syntace F99: cheaper, lighter and just as stiff (well, I haven't tried a Bontrager stem, but the Syntace's been stiff since day one).

    mmmmm….maybe you need to throw on a Cane Creek IS-8 carbon headset for an uninterrupted flow of carbon fiber.

    FSA Orbit Carbon

    It actually is a FSA Carbon headset. The picture does not show it well.
