    anyone use FSA k force stem on their mtb ?

    hey all.
    As the title suggests, i am wanting to know if it is ok to use the FSA K-force full caron stem on my mtb.
    The stem will be used in conjunction with a pair of fsa k force carbon flat bars (31.8).
    I cant see any problems with using it, but i thought id ask first and see what others have to say.
    Please dont say , oh other stems are luighter etc...
    The reason i want to know, is i am building up a 05'giant MCM team frame, and want to have as many carbon parts as is humanly possible

    Heres the build so far -

    Frame - 05 mcm team (M)
    Fork - 05 sid WC
    Headset - FSA integrated with carbon cap, and spacers
    Stem - fsa Kforce (or FSA OS115)
    Bars - Fsa k force flat
    Brakes - Avid ultimate
    f mech - Sram x-gen
    R mech - X.O
    shifters - X.O
    Cassette - dura ace 12-27T Ti
    Chain - SRam pc89 hp
    Cranks - Fsa carbon team
    BB - fsa platinum Ti
    Pedals - eggbeater tripplr Ti
    wheelset - crossmax SL's
    Tyres - various
    Tubes - michelin latex
    Saddle - selle SLR carbon
    Seatpost - FSA K force lite
    seat collar - hopefully, some carbon one

    As you can probably tell, i have a hardcore carbon fiber addiction

    I've used the OS115...

    No problems with the OS115, and it's still got a carbon faceplate. If you're really on about the K-Force, call FSA- they'll tell you if it's safe or not. They're pretty reasonable to deal with and give pretty strait answers about their stuff.
    A hardtail is forever
