How do you find the CX handlebars on your road bike? is it comfortable. I'm thinking of doing the same for my new build. It's Either the Enve compact or thomson kfc as i find the road version to bike a drop for my back.
thanks !

I am very happy with the KFC bars. The have a round profile and are quite thick on the top - fits the hands nicely when on the hoods or climbing with the hands on the bars. I like the Pro Digital tape - plus with some tackiness and a lot cheaper than Lizard Skins.

Guru is having a factory sale. I picked up the frame and SRAM demo groupset. The wheels were another online bargain! The bike feels scary light. I'll post more pictures when I'm done.
