    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.

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 ...

    would you use this stem on an xc mtb?

    I only ask cos it's specifically listed in the 'road' section. My hunch is that it would be fine, but I'd like a few other opinions please.
