Strength:

Good finish, quality bolts, easy installation.

Weakness:

None notable.

Buy it if you need to get those handlebars a bit higher. I didn't need to extend either brake or gear cables for my installation.

Strength:

Good strong design and easy to install. I was able to raise the bar 3 inches with no cable mods. I was concerned that it would be weaker than the stock setup, but after installing and riding, my concerns are gone.

Weakness:

Not as pretty as replacing the stem/bar but a lot cheaper and easier.


Works as advertised.

Strength:

Raises bars up to seat level for those of us with back problems, greatly increasing comfort.

Weakness:

Weight. Fashion police may disapprove, but who cares?

I bought my Poprad because I wanted a versatile road bike that could handle wider tires for light trail use, like the Katy trail. It came with the standard racer set-up, seat nearly 3 inches above bars when set up for my 35" inseam. Way too high for my bad back. After trying riser stems that didn't raise them enough, I got one of these and have been happy ever since. It's an inexpensive solution, but check your cable lengths as they may need to be lengthened.

Strength:

It works. Works as a small storage space for money.

Weakness:

"Untraditional" Beware the stem police! Adds a bit of weight, but heck....

Was over zealous when cutting my fork steerer...there was no turning back. It either meant I had to get a new fork or get the Delta. I went for the cheaper solution. Easy to install with a good range of adjustability. Haven't been to a chiropractor for awhile either! An overall good solution, makes one wonder why nobody else makes it...hmmm.
