    Strengths:    Light,beautifully made and great looking lightweight stem.Many colours available.

    Weaknesses:    To be honest none at all.

    Bottom Line:   
    A very well made,great looking lightweight stem that doesn`t flex,creak or loosen.I`m quite hard on my bike/kit and was worried that it might not be up to much abuse but its proved to be an excellent piece of kit.
    To be honest I only bought one because they were different and trick looking and i`m a sucker for shiny spangly things but I`m glad I did because it`s been one of my better buys in recent years.Believe you me i`ve bought some crap masquerading as good gear.

Will this make it eaiser to pop the front wheel up and off stuff? What im worried about is I wont have e ... Read More »

    Bar and Stem Length Trends for XC?

    Seems like there's a lot of discussion on the benefits of moving to wider bars and shorter stems for general riding but I haven't seen a lot of change in the XC scene. I could be missing something, but it seems like the majority of any change in regards to bar and stem length was due mainly to th ... Read More »

    How much stem/bar difference from your XC rig to your AM rig?

    Hi folks, hoping I can see what others do and determine whats reasonable for me-- looking for feedback. I have years of experience on XC racing rigs and wondering whether I have my AM bike setup accordingly, or if my AM setup is limiting my abilities on the gnarly steep stuff. At 5'11", I have l ...
