Sweet Stem!!

The Good:

Rise and Length are spot on! Graphics are legit!

The Bad:

The bolts are weak, damaged 2 of them in a nasty crash!

Overall Review:

The Blk Mrkt Underboss Stem is a good stem for it's price, maybe not the lightest nor the best, but it's good looking and cheap! Will do the job if your not a weight weenie and if you're on a budget!

So-so stem

The Good:

Looks pretty amazing in polished colour, kind of light.

The Bad:

Tiny hardware, slips like crazy, bolts strip instantly, friend of mine had the threads just rip out of the stem body.

Overall Review:

I'd be hard pressed to recommend this stem by any metric, there are lighter, cheaper, better-looking, better-performing stems out there.
