hi guys,

im looking at a carbon bar/stem/seatpost combo from use for my re-fixed kona lavadome.

this lot any good?

http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=8472

http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=2739

http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=2740

http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=13693

im tossing up between a riser or flat. can anyone tell me the real difference rather than "one is higher than the other".

anyone have any other reccomendations for a matching setup of these three?

thanks

jon

USE stuff is good. Get risers if you want to get your cockpit a bit taller, they will most likely also have different sweep to the flats.

I have a few USE bits, Ive been riding with USE XCR shok posts for years now and its difficult to go back to a rigid post, makes riding even just roads more comfortable, especially if you have a very rigid Aluminium frame. Ive had a very old XCR post with the inline clamp with 40mm travel, then the XCR sumo carbon post, both well worth the money, considering USEs carbon post isnt far behind for cost! You can even tune them with various spring/elastomer combos and the preload. Ive also got the USE atom carbon bars, very nice!

If your after even more USE stuff I have a set of USE XCR Suspension fork I may part with as they just dont suit my bike.
