I need a lower stack height stem for my urban/play bike, and the only ones I've been able to find in the size (80mm, 25.4) I need are a Kalloy and a Dimension. I'm pretty sure they're actually the same stem. Question is, would you trust them?

I weigh about 165 with gear.

Kalloy:


Dimension:

I weigh 40 pounds more than you and have used some sketchy stems, whoops. I don't think you would have a problem.

out of curiosity, why whould you wan't such a long stem on a "urban/play" bike? a shorter stem will make it a much more responsive...
I know it sounds weird, but it's what feels best to me. For a long time I ran it with a 50mm stem, but then I started taking it out on trails more, tried a 80mm to see how it would feel, and liked it a lot more.

Sure makes you think but I've never toasted a Kalloy stem - they hold up even tho the price seems ridiculously low.

Have FUN!
