Thinking of building up a new XC/Trail machine and looking for a component suite.

 

Are Momsen really decent? There aren't many user reviews I can find on the web. any opinions would be good.

 

Its a choice between Momsen, KCNC, Easton and Ritchey

I've got Easton carbon Hbars and they are excellent...just looking around to see what other components people rate.

 

I've heard good things about Thomson...expensive but good.

If you going carbon go Easton, they make really good carbon stuff.

 

I would also go with Easton.

 

But honestly it should all do the job.

Victor has many years experience with Raleigh and (I believe) Volcan. I can't imagine him speccing cr@p and then putting his name on it. I've looked at his bikes and they are good quality at a good price.

Momsen parts are the business. I swopped my FSA Carbon seatpost for a Momsen LB Post. Way lighter and actually came in 2 grams UNDER the claimed weight on the packaging. How often does that happen with "name" brand parts? Never.

 

I would have gone for a momsen stem as well, had they had my length and color in stock when I wanted to buy.

 

Look at the Momsen range, you won't be sorry.

 

Local is lekker china!

When it comes to stems, bar ends, bars, seat posts etc, they are all the same. They all do exactly the same job. One brand may be a few grams lighter etc, but nothing to shout home about. Get the parts that look the nicest to you.

I'm running Momsen Stem OV 110mm and the Carbon riser bar, soooo awesome. They both crazy light and very comfortable.

Would recommend them any day.

Anyone know where I can have a look at the bits in person?...the website doesn't seem to want to show me the dealer locations in JHB.
