Strength:

Strong, no flex, looks good, lightish, cheapish

Weakness:

Shortest is 90mm - could go for a 70mm or 80mm option

Crikey! Stems are one part where high end brands seem way overpriced (Th, RF, Eas)- they only have to connect the steerer & bars - with reach & rise options to match you and your frame - and not break or flex too much or look bad

These are cheap in NZ, nicely finished with ok graphics & minimal faceplate, don't seem to flex, and they're light enough for most uses. They havn't damaged carbon bars or gouged my knees. Come in 0 or 10 degree rise

One shorter length in the range would be good - say a 70mm

No nonsense engineering at recession beating price, thanks Titec

Strength:

10 degree or 0 degree option. Most stems come with 5 or 6 degree but I wanted just a bit more. Also bought it to go with my Hellbent bars. Strong and light, at least compared to my OE one.

Weakness:

It didnt come with my bike?

Mine is the Rip 3D SILVER, the one pictured above is the GOLD series. The gold may be a touch lighter but I didn't like the shiny front plate or the heafty price.

Strength:

Available in a zero degree rise, product finish, and a respectable weight.

Weakness:

None

Great stem for the money, and one of maybe three manufactures that offer a zero degree rise stem. They are a quality stem that will not break the bank! Will write a follow up when I have more time on the stem.
