Date Reviewed: July 26, 2011

Strengths:    Cheap, strong, functional.

Weaknesses:    None so far

Bottom Line:   
Stripped threads? Really? Common lets face it most of us are not "hucking" it that big. The thing is there are a shortage of short stems out there. Someone was thinking of me when they made this stem. I ride an all mountain bike and free ride it a little. That is what it was made for, not a downhill bike.

Submitted by OSM a Racer from mountain view, Ca. USA

Date Reviewed: January 21, 2010

Strengths:    This stem is cheap and easy to get a hold off almost anywhere. It is lighter than some that are more pricey.

Weaknesses:    Nothing special to look at. threads stripped from inside of stem at steer tube clamp.

Bottom Line:   
I got this stem twice. The 1st time I needed a stem fast. It worked, so I ran it for a year untill the threads stripped out from inside the bolt hole.(maybe I over tightened just a bit) I needed another stem so I could go ride. The same product was available for $20 so I got it. well, 7 months later I stripped the top threads on the clamp again. (time for a Sunline V-one 65mm) I did take this stem off 6' drops, 20' doubles a few DH HT races, lots of crashes. lots of climbing hours. some more climbing. At least 700 hours of use between the 2 stems. The bars never slipped and the stem never failed under use. the forks did twist out of alignment w/ the bars one time during a DH race crash. Strong enough for AM use. a little heavy for XC. strong for some free ride, but not hucking a big bike off cliffs.

Farlow Gap Trail, WNC

Not me, found this on reddit and thought our little slice of heaven could use some more attention. I can never find videos of how good our trails are so I like to share them when I can. Shaky video, sadly; but that certainly comes with the WNC territory (roots, rocks). [video=youtube;TQGhR7OOiw ... Read More »

Places to ride near Water Gap PA

I'm heading up to Water Gap PA for the weekend. I'm looking for trails or places to ride in the area. I'm not looking for anything too technical or challenging just somewhere to stretch my riding legs and put in an hour or so for exercise. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.Read More »

Gap between chain and chainring

Straight forward question... I think. What the heck could be causing this gap between the chain and the chain-ring? This is on a hybrid I built. I made it from a mid 80's Schwinn World Sport. Drivetrain is 6x2 with a compact up front. It sees mostly rail trail stuff and some light duty logging trail ... Read More »
