Tioga’s Taskforce kit is affordable yet stylish and functional. The bar is 680mm long with a 10-degree sweep and a medium 36mm rise. It has a standard 25.4mm clamping area but this is wide to match the Taskforce stem and provide good stiffness.
The stem uses two 5mm pinch bolts to clamp the steerer, and four 5mm bolts spread over two separate clamps to hold the bar in place. This is effective at distributing the twisting force that stems are subjected to without over-building the stem.
The bar and stem also look tidy and burly and they’re good value.
