Date Reviewed: March 20, 2006

Strengths:    Good strong design and easy to install. I was able to raise the bar 3 inches with no cable mods. I was concerned that it would be weaker than the stock setup, but after installing and riding, my concerns are gone.

Weaknesses:    Not as pretty as replacing the stem/bar but a lot cheaper and easier.

Bottom Line:   

Works as advertised.

Strengths:    Raises bars up to seat level for those of us with back problems, greatly increasing comfort.

Weaknesses:    Weight. Fashion police may disapprove, but who cares?

Bottom Line:   
I bought my Poprad because I wanted a versatile road bike that could handle wider tires for light trail use, like the Katy trail. It came with the standard racer set-up, seat nearly 3 inches above bars when set up for my 35" inseam. Way too high for my bad back. After trying riser stems that didn't raise them enough, I got one of these and have been happy ever since. It's an inexpensive solution, but check your cable lengths as they may need to be lengthened.

Strengths:    It works. Works as a small storage space for money.

Weaknesses:    "Untraditional" Beware the stem police! Adds a bit of weight, but heck....

Bottom Line:   
Was over zealous when cutting my fork steerer...there was no turning back. It either meant I had to get a new fork or get the Delta. I went for the cheaper solution. Easy to install with a good range of adjustability. Haven't been to a chiropractor for awhile either! An overall good solution, makes one wonder why nobody else makes it...hmmm.

Date Reviewed: April 22, 2004

Strengths:    Good finish, quality bolts, easy installation.

Weaknesses:    None notable.

Bottom Line:   
Buy it if you need to get those handlebars a bit higher. I didn't need to extend either brake or gear cables for my installation.

threadless riser adaptor or 130 deg stem?

I want to get my bars up a little higher as I am showing quite a bit of seatpost. I am wondering about advantages/ disadvantages of using either a riser adapter or replacing the 100 x 105 deg stem I am using with something like a 135mm x 130 deg?Read More »
