Date Reviewed: July 4, 2009

Strengths:    Built strong, available in steep angles and long lengths, relatively light

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
I needed to bring up my handlebars a couple inches, and this stem fit the bill. I got one with a steep 35 degree angle and 110mm of length. It put the handlebars exactly where I needed them.

This product is marketed as a road stem, but it's survived some pretty harsh mountain biking without any issues. I'm 6'1" and weigh 260 pounds, but I wouldn't hesitate to punish it even more. The 4 face bolts hold my handlebars extremely tight, and the 2 opposed steerer bolts do a great job of keeping things solid.

My only issue is the price, which is a tad higher than I hoped to pay for a stem. But I don't regret it at all.

Strengths:    clean cut good looking
light
no creeking, even after 3 years of riding


Weaknesses:    no short lengths to choose from

Bottom Line:   
Quite simply the best I have ever used. My riding style has changed a bit over the years and I decided to go for a much shorter stem. My Ritchey Pro is 110mm but I needed to go down to 50mm. From what I can see Ritcheys shortest is 80mm. My choice would be their WCS but had to settle for a disappointing Raceface AM Atlas.

Changing 2006 MX Pro for 2013 Recon Gold RL: worth it ?

Hi, I have the possibility of "upgrading" my 2006 Marzocchi MX pro fork to a 2013 Recon Gold RL really cheap. Both are 9mm QR, 120mm travel. The Recon is of course more recent, has got 32mm stanchions (MX Pro 30mm) and is about 250g lighter. I am very satisfied of the MX Pro, and wondered ... Read More »
