    Big Guy, Carbon Bar?

    Well I looked and I couldn't find anything about it, so I'll ask. I'm a bigger guy 210-225 (it varies alot) and I just ordered a K-Force low riser bar. My LBS told me that I should stay away from carbon because it breaks often, but the bar was a gift from my girlfriend, so I can't exactly turn it away ( )

    Anyways, is there a "weight limit" on carbon bars? I've e-mailed FSA but not yet heard back. thanks.

    Makes no sense, if you can't explain it to the GF, get a new GF.

    Or you can do some some testing on that K-Force & ask the GF if she'll lov'ya with less teeth.

    Actually depends on your type of riding....

    we mostly ride daily in the park so that's not a big deal, during the weekend I do some real trails not too much technical stuff since i'm still learning.

    Then no big deal, before you break the bar (and teeth), you'll have changed GF or the bike or lost the extra luggage...
