This is not a carbon stem. It's a os-99 wrapped in carbon. Wrapped carbon add pretty much nothing except weight.The_Stig said:I am looking for a Carbon stem, so far this is the only one i can find. I am having my bars and seatpost match and I would like the stem to match too. All carbon.
Let me take the thread a different way then. What full Carbon stem would be good?digit3 said:I presume that you meant wrapped not "warped"?
True, carbon wrapped over aluminum is all show without the ride qualities of carbon. However, based on your previous reply perhaps having matching carbon appearance is more important to you....
The original FSA OS-99 is flexy, the carbon wrap does stiffen it up quite a bit.It should make it less fragile as well. There's not very much aluminium in the OS-99.Megaclocker said:This is not a carbon stem. It's a os-99 warped in carbon. Warped carbon add pretty much nothing except weight.
