Submitted by Tim from Worcester

Date Reviewed: March 20, 2008

Strengths:    light, nice looks, strong, not sure what else I can get excited about

Weaknesses:    Occasionally I get a creak (more like a click) from the stem/bars area. Makes me think that a four bolt clamp would be better. It may be a flex think or something to do with the pressure that my heavy weight puts on it. Like I said, it only happens occasionally (then I give a spray and it's cured).

Bottom Line:   
This stem has been doing a job very nicely for me, and with a nice length for my ride (80 or 90mm) the cockpit feels very assured. I've had no problems with it apart from this occasional creak/click sound, but with a clean or a spray it is sorted and my confidence is restored. I felt happier with the four bolt ritchey stem, but that was too long and I got this for a good price. It also happened to match my bars and together they look real trick.
