Does anyone have a opinion or a review on the Answer rove dirt jump stem used as a all mountan type stem?http://www.answerproducts.com/components/dj-stem/
Yeah, I bought a 50mm at the same time I bought the Rove AM stems, 60 and 70mm. The DJ stem is too short to be a practical trail riding stem, it's super good looking though. I tried all three on the same ride, doing quick laps up techy washed out FR climb and back down some fun, rocky, ledgey, DH lines. The best length, IMO, is the the 70mm Rove AM stem. I run it inverted with Answers 720mm Pro Taper AM bars in a half inch rise (why they don't make a flat bar in this style, I don't know...) The 60 was a good descender, but still was twitchy on the climbs and the 50 was all over the place climbing and not noticably any better at descending or speeds, the shorter stems need a wider bar. It'll be going on my DJ bike, 60 will sit in backup or exchanged for the Protaper DH bar.

Answer makes some legit stuff, and those stems look dirty as hell. One of the better aesthetically looking stems on the market for sure. Makes the short list. I wouldn't go lower than 70 like the gentleman said.
