    Question to owners of FSA K-Wing Handlebars

    I got the hots for the K-Wing when I rode with a chap that had them, and just had mine installed today. In his installation, the wrapping is minimal and allows the full logo on top of the bars to show - also there is an indentation that one's hand fits. Mine were wrapped about half-way across the bars obscuring most of the logo. I am curious as to where most users place the wraps. Another thing I noted is that the flat portion on top of the bars point a few degrees upwards rather than being parallel to the ground. I also wonder if that is the configuration most run. Thanks in advance for you input.

    I have a set of these. The indentation is where your thumb goes (so I've been told).

    In the attached photo you may be able to see that the bar tape starts where the bars get thin.

    The horizontal part of the bars do slope upwards slightly - presumably so you hands can sit comfortably and 'flat' (or flush).

    Why not just use a stem mount? It's not like we're talking the Cinelli Ram here.

    As it turns out, the stock bracket for the Cateye CD300 fits perfectly right adjacent to the stem placing the computer face exactly over the stem - worked out perfectly!
