    Carbon flat bar...FSA v Ritchey

    I'm deciding between the K-Force and WCS Carbon flat bars for my next upgrade. Can anyone comment toward the strength/stiffness of either bar? I'll use a Syntace F119 stem which is 31.8mm, for reference.

    Hope this is the correct forum. Thanks!

    i have used both.....

    i cant comment on the stregth since i didn't break either. i prefer the fsa since it is
    a tad wider and a tad lighter. i also prefer the bend, it is swept 1 degree more
    and it is flat top (the bulge is not centered on the diameter of the bar) if that makes
    sense.

    I like the Ritchey WCS Carbon Flat Bar. It looks so much nicer than the FSA. I like the understated looks and graphics of the Ritchey WCS carbon components and the high glossy carbon weave. The FSA is nice, but it looks gaudy and it actually weighed a little more on my gram scale than the Ritchey. I carry both in my store, so I weighed them. FSA is famous for understating thier weights.
