Submitted by Ashes a Downhiller from Perth, West Australia

Date Reviewed: September 27, 1999

Strengths:    
adjustability - good for varying from dh to xc to road friendly positions
stiff - my 80mm version is stiff as
durable - holding together nicely


Weaknesses:    
heavy - not sure how heavy but looks like a brick
ugly - looks pretty weird


Bottom Line:   
Can't complain about it really. It's pretty handy for adjusting for different tracks and rides. Strong and stiff, nice piece of equipment. Minus one for weight and looks.

Strengths:    
Durable
Adjustable height


Weaknesses:    
Heavy


Bottom Line:   
It is a reliable stem, but heavier than the competion. It is kind of cool that you can adjust the height whenever you want to. I can't really complain or rave about anything on this stem. Just a good old reliable stem.

Bottom Line:   


i bought the rocket parts stem a while back, and i am not pleased with it at all. I stripped out two bolts in the front, so I put some bigger ones in for replacements. I also notice some flexing in the stem. Next time I will spend a little more and buy a better stem

Bottom Line:   


I have a Rocket Boster Sleeve with a Kore stem. This is a very hot setup. I had a 1-1/4 steer on my old ironhorse, but wanted to use a Kore stem on my new rig with an 1-1/8 steer. This combo is great for fine tuning the height between bikes.

Bottom Line:   


This an awesome good looking stem that is a must for adjustability if you ride
a lot of different types of terrain. Put on a riser bar with it and you have SOOO much adjusting capacity!!
This kills all stock stems! I adjust the height often to suit riding conditions and I find it indispensable for a good fit!

Submitted by Da Guy Jeff a downhiller from Honolulu

Date Reviewed: January 14, 1998

Bottom Line:   


Why didn't someone else think of this before? A stem for threadless set ups that can be
adjusted up & down without touching the headset adjustment. A nice looking piece that set
up easy and worked as advertised! Came with sleeves for use on your current set up and
another for when you're installing a new fork. Weight is about 200 grams, cost about $75.
Damn, these guys aren't just gloves after all.
