Bottom Line:   

The ti stem I puchased from Litespeed was cheeper than the Ibis I had four years ago but seems to be more flexier. I wish I would have found another Ibis as that was my first choice anyways!

Bottom Line:   

I'm currently using an older model of Litespeed Ti stem
(150mm x 5 deg). Aside from exhibiting design brillance
and quality of fabrication, it has just the right amount of
stiffness/flex and damping to make extended rides more
pleasurable. I've ridden numerous centuries with very little
wrist fatigue at the end of the ride. Granted, shock absorption
is also achieved from using a (flexy) Kestrel composite bar and
front suspension, but the stem is a particularly signficant
component in the equation in terms of yaw input. The folks at
Litespeed are fantastic people as well. Five flaming bones
for this product.

Bottom Line:   

Everything about the stem is great except one--it is expensive!! I think you pay mostly for bragging rights because my old Control Tech was just as good...just not as exotic. It's right up there with a lot of other good stems, but it's not better for any other reason besides weight.

Bottom Line:   

This stem is awsome! Mine is polished and looks cool on my Obed.
It has the knee saver design and hat TI bolts.
I used to have a KORE, but it was too stiff for me. The stem absorbs and
takes away the rough edge of the bumps and has has all of the features of TI.
