    Strengths:    Uber strong, light and good looking.

    Weaknesses:    None

    Bottom Line:   
    I've used a few of these; the best around performance/style and usually the best price. There isn't alot to say, Thomson and Race Face get the attention, Titec should take the awards.

    Strengths:    Ridged, strong, solid grip, great looks.

    Weaknesses:    none

    Bottom Line:   
    Great stem. By far the strongest and most ridged. It is quite light, for the strength. Plus a great warranty to back it up. Clamps on both steer tube and handle bars are solid. Cant go wrong with this stem. You'll never have the need to buy another.

    Strengths:    Strong, not overly heavy, looks good.

    Weaknesses:    None I know of

    Bottom Line:   
    What a sweet stem, very strong but not too heavy. Not too over the top (build) for All Mtn or FR bikes. I'm surprised more people aren’t using them.

    Strengths:    Perfect geometry - holds like bar is welded to fork! Super strong, but amazingly light weight. Looks GREAT!

    Weaknesses:    None! Finally found the PERFECT stem!

    Bottom Line:   
    The BEST stem I've ever used. Everyone I know went to the Race Face because it was so "trendy", but now they're looking at mine w/ envy!

    Yakima Blockhead, Bedhead, Beddy Jo?

    I'm looking at some inexpensive options for transporting a bike in the back of the pick up. I know that the Blockhead is fairly popular, but the Bedhead and Beddy Jo both look good also. The Bedhead doesn't look like much of an upgrade over the Blockhead, but the Beddy Jo looks like it could be ... Read More »
