Date Reviewed: March 7, 2001

Strengths:    Strength, awesome appearance, nice sturdy feel

Weaknesses:    Weight (not a real big issue though - its not bad)

Bottom Line:   
What a beautiful objet de bike! Extraordinary design, beautiful lines and form. When it's not on my bike I put it on my mantlepiece to impress the neighbours. (It won a major US design award).

Extremely sturdy and strong (maybe a tad heavy perhaps). The most effective and sexy a-head stem I've used. Cinelli have now copied it more or less (I think TTT is owned by them anyway...), but the original is still the sexier.

When you are feeling pain and pushing hard, focus on the beatiful mutant ahead of you; makes all those hard k's seem not so bad.

Submitted by Steve a Racer from Brooklyn

Date Reviewed: March 7, 2000

Strengths:    It's strength

Weaknesses:    It's looks

Bottom Line:   
I dont know what the planned demographics were for this stem but I have it on my road bike and it works pretty well. No creak's no sqeak's and no flex, a company would have to be pretty inept to screw something as simple as a threadless stem up. The only thing that bothers me about it are its looks, it truly does look like a mutant. To me it seems out of place on my road bike...but it was the only one that met my criteria. Being that the face plate absolutly had to be removable, otherwise the size and lenght is right. I havent seen many companies that make a 1" steerer tube holed removable face plate stem. Atleast not as many as there 1 1/8" holed stems. I'll take on flaming burrito away for looks.

Date Reviewed: November 21, 1999

Strengths:    
Looks (subjective)


Bottom Line:   
I'm very disappointed with the quality of this product. The headset surface is not square with the steerer tube, thus causing the headset to either bind or be loose. I have yet to contact the manufacturer about this problem.

Revesektion mutant fork - what do you think?

I've just canned an Air U-Turn Pike with Push upgrade - stanchions wore out - from the front of my Pace RC405 and replaced it with a Revelation XX Dual Air and somehow I don't quite like it - feels too light and slightly too tall for the frame, plus I've always liked the idea of a coil fork. So.. ... Read More »

Dealing with a typical Craigslist mutant for used bike

I have noticed a huge decline in Craigslist lately. Most the people there are utter mutants that can't help to do everything wrong, they cannot list their items correctly or pick-up an item when they say will they will. Here is a recent Craigslist experience, I got to enjoy with one of them. Min ... Read More »

She likes the bike and climbs like a strange mutant, but..

I'm getting Sevan back on her bike after a failed attempt to get her interested last year as she was finishing her PhD- who'd have thought 15 hour days would cut into your time to pick up a new hobby? Anyway, she's got fantastic balance, great strength to weight ratio, and i haven't found anything t ... Read More »
