A purchase for a bike that doesnt exist any more.
Only taken out of the box to photo.
Best stiffness to weight ratio of anything other than ultra high end custom (darimo etc).
Full, proper, internal cable routing.
All information can be found here and various other links from there:
Really well made and thoroughly tested (olympic gold medal winners choice of bars) not to mention great looking.
Question, what are the two holes next to the steerer for?
Presumably the cable exit
Yup - I think as a lot of cable routing in frames is focussed around the head tube entry that these are to bring the internal routing as close as possible - I bought these for the System Six as a much lighter stiffer option to the Knot bars
Exactly what I had hoped...but now you've confirmed, the conundrum begins. I hate the Knot bars on mine with a passion.
Edit: in the link there's even a 'Dale
I'll have a think as stem might be 2cm too short 😞
I have the System Six integrated spacer for the frame aswell.
I loved the look and shape of the Knot bars but wanted the lightest, stiffest possible alternatives.
You certainly don’t suffer with T-Rex arms like me lad 😂
Annoyingly I think I'm just going to have to shell out for a new set in the right dimensions - 38cm by 120mm. They look great and the only bit of the SS I think that could be improved. GLWS matey
Hah my last bike fit was for TT and now the long seatpost length is mirrored by an equally long, super-angled set of extensions. Basically like the Ganna setup, but even more ungainly 😔
Yeah don’t worry about it mate - good news is that farsports is bloody excellent from a shipping / delivery and customer service perspective - the initial bar stem arrived in well under a month but they forgot to include the system six bearing cover.
I pinged them a message and they had one shipped fedex from China that arrived in 48h.
With the innovation and quality control of companies like farsport and LightBicycle I really don’t know how Enve, for example, can still charge £300 for a stem and £4K for a set of wheels, that could only ever be described as just about en par.
I have a set of these on my Supersix, they're excellent. For those interested, if the -10 angle is a bit much for you, you can get a shim to reduce it to -7. GLWS
All the shims are in the box actually - good point @Jameo! Thanks!
I wish it had some flare to use it on my gravel bike
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
