These handlebars are awesome! K-Force is the name applied to all of FSA's top-end carbon components, and with the K-Force Riser weighing just 188g, it is certainly light. It's made from a mixture of carbon and Kevlar to cope with the demands a handlebar gets put through. The area where the stem clamps in place is reinforced, with a textured finish at the stem and lever clamping areas, to prevent everything rotating when you're dropping into that steep bombhole. Install was easy as pie just check your current stem diameter and don't forget to pick up some FSA installation compound to prevent wear and protect your bars.

This tool is really nice and great for the price. I was looking for something light I could throw in my camelbak and use when issues come along on the trail and this fits the bill. It is only 39g (1.4oz) heavier than the Lezyne CF multi 5 tool and costs $67 less... My only complaint is that the smallest hex did not fit the bolts in my hand grips by a hair but I suppose I could be the one to blame for not buying a tool with more sizes. Good buy!

I ordered the FSA K-force XC handle bars and didn't want the clamp force to be any greater than necessary and this stuff fits the bill. As stated on the packaging, it reduces torque up to 30%, protects from corrosion, and eliminates creaking noises. The compound itself is a red color and looks like strawberry jelly (don't eat it). I had enough to coat all the way around the stem with about 1/4th of a package remaining.

I took a hard spill and broke my last helmet which gave me a great excuse to shell out for this bad boy. I looked at a few Giros but none of them seemed to be reviewed as highly as the Fox Flux so I went ahead and ordered one. After a few days of riding, I can safely say it is a GREAT helmet. The fit, ventilation, head cover, weight, and style are all bomber. My only concern is that while the adjustment in the back looks great, it feels a little sketchy. I'll post a picture of it as you can't see it in any of the product pix. Only time will tell how the helmet holds up but knowing fox's reputation, I'm sure it will be fine. $100 for a great helmet you hardly notice beats the heck out of a few thousand dollars spent on a hospital bill!

These work awesome as a front or rear tire. The other great thing is that not only do they have different widths, but different rubber densities for tweakability. I'm running a 2.35 up front and a 2.1 in the rear with a slightly harder compound. 2.1 sheds mud really well but mind you it is a SMALL 2.1 if not a 1.9-2.0. Still if you're riding a soft-tail, just run a high pressure and the pinching won't be an issue. I haven't yet found a condition that doesn't suit these. I can climb out of saddle on slick hardpack and she still hooks up. A heavier tire that's worth every penny!
