A pair of Farsports F1 bars and a pair of 50mm Kaze rims on DT350 hubs arrived last week.
Are those the normal BMC ICS spacers? If so, it looks like the F1 fits perfectly with the shape of the spacers.
No - they're the OD1 spacers that come with the kit. THey are very nearly perfect but lift 1/2mm higher at the back.

I bought extra 10mm spacers to reach the height I needed
Hi can you give me the measurements of those OD1 spacers? I have a similar frame with non-itegrated cables (mech+hydr), a Stevens Comet Disc 2019. I really would like to order F1s (or actually now F1x), but it should still look good on my "classical" frame. I am worried that the OD1 spacer is just to "large" in width in would overlap the steerer tube / headset lit.

Thanks :)

The specs look good but the price is really optimistic...

For perspective, F1s had an MSRP of 1898 RMB in China but was priced at 399 USD overseas (~50% markup). Since F1x is now priced at 2798 RMB, we can expect it to retail for 599 USD abroad...

Any ideas when these would first become up for sale outside of China?
Also, what is that 30g weight increase in the description from 280 to 310g? Mandatory spacers / OD1 reducers / computer mount?
Minimum bike categories required in the stable:
Aero bike | GC bike | GC rim bike | Climbing bike | Climbing rim bike | Classics bike | Gravel bike | TT bike | Indoors bike

Metal parts (screws, topcap & GPS mount) but excluding OD1 shim

Good estimation, they're 539 USD

Does anyone know, if F1 integrated handlebar/stem is compatible with the Scott Addict? I am especially interested in Addict Gravel, and as far as I know, it has the same system (for Creston IC). Was looking for previous model F1.

And do you guys think it is suitable for a gravel bike? Will be riding mostly road but still also on gravel.

As far as I know, you only need an adapter. Just verify if your Addict Gravel uses the same headset cups as the Addict RC.

Any option to buy the handlebar bike adapters (I am looking for the Merida Scultura adapter) in Europe? Any FarSports distributor/dealer?

I did ask Farsport if it will be OK, and they confirmed. But would need their spacer, so when ordering, I would have to write this to them.

Have not bought them (yet). Still deciding if integrated carbon handlebar would be Ok for accasionally gravel ride. Am afraid that the handlebar would be too stiff for gravel. Any thoughts?

I have received my F1x and the raw carbon look fits really nicely to my bike. The OD1 spacer was surprisingly ok, but not perfect since it left a bit of steerer beering uncovered. I got some nice 3d print spacers, which already combine 1 standard spacer and the OD1. Final pictures will come soon :)

Weight savings are 50% accounted by a much lighter Wahoo mount.

Anyone else purchased the F1X?

Currently using Vision Metron 5D and it doesn't aestherically jive with my bike and thinking of this. FS supplies the spacers which is a huge plus

For those willing to go full WW and scrap paint there is 33g to win.

313.5 for the 380x110 stock
278.5 sanded and with 2 layers of clear coat.

After 2 clearcoats layers

That was my first attempt sanding but from what I have seen from others forum members there is quite a lot of filler on several places (middle of the stem, at the stem / bar junction, at the bar end) even with some plastic inserts.
