    “Sorry Thomson”

    The Good: So light, very stiff, many length options, wider faceplate than it looks, 0 degree rise, low stack height, Canadian Made!, killer with wide bars on any trail bike. In shorter lengths also killer lightweight stem option for your DJ bike. Could go on for days even with such a simple product. Have one on my Nomad C, and also running one on my SC Jackal. Perfect!

    The Bad: Bad? Some will say price... Chromag can have my money.. Killer service from guys that ride bikes with amazing attitudes...

    Overall Review:

    Chromag is flat out making impressive bits these days... This stem has opened my eyes to their entire line and I will do what I can to run Chromag parts where I can on my bikes... The Ranger is no exception, and is a quality stem with killer performance. As much as I dig Thomson stuff(killer customer service also by the way, and also North American manufacturing always a bonus), i will be running these from now on.

    “BC masterpiece”

    The Good: This stem is light, stiff and clean. it gives your bike a north shore feel while also having extensive color options.

    The Bad: The stem liked to move a bit during crashes and eventually began to strip

    Overall Review:

    This stem is fantastic for someone who wants the absolute best, quite honestly it is in a category with very few others for some of the nicest products around.

    “The ultimate stem”

    The Good: Lightweight, great design, canadian made ofcourse and stiff

    The Bad: There is no 35mm option, price

    Overall Review:

    It does cost alot but I've just bought the third one. I have one on my freeride bike (black 40mm) and I've had one on my fr/am hardtail (gold 50mm). I've currently sold my fr/am hardtail bike to my friend and am in process of building myself a new one, so I ordered a red 50mm chromag ranger stem. The thing is, I've been so impressed with the performance of this stem, that when I was looking at every other manufacturer's high end stem I still could not get over the fact that I wasn't buying chromag. So in the end, when nothing could even remotely compare to the ranger stem I just ordered a new one

    You can run any width handlebar with this stem without feeling any flex despite the small screws and thin walls. Seems that the thing being cnc'd out of a solid block of high quality aluminium and by a company with that much experience in that field (north shore billet makes the stems and some other parts for chromag) the result should be nothing short of impressive. Although there is a stem from chromag for more extreme riding (chromag hifi) I never felt like the ranger wouldn't be able to withstand anything I threw at it. I would recommend that for extreme use you run the shortest version, just because of the shorter leverage resulting in less stress on the stem.

    “Great product!”

    The Good: Precision made, well-constructed, great colors, great logo, it works!

    The Bad: Some might say the price is to high, but for Chromag product line, I am prepared to pay some extra money!

    Overall Review:

    Great product, worth of every penny!

    “Have money? Give it to Chromag.”

    The Good: Stiff, solid finish, variety of lengths, looks solid.

    The Bad: 35mm? Probably in the near future

    Overall Review:

    Got one for my Rune when I was trying to save weight without compromising on performance. Holy cow! The guys at Chromag hit the nail on the head. I have the 45mm in red. I was going to get a Thomson stem but I'm glad I didn't. This thing keeps my bars close in a light package. The quality is excellent so i'm never worry about anything going wrong. The company does a kick ass job with their service too. I bought a saddle from them directly and USPS lost it. I shit them an email and BOOM they had one to me in 3 days with a boarder crossing. Most companies wouldn't probably get back to me in the time it took these guys to get me a new saddle. Hard to beat that kind of attention.

    “Thomson Killer”

    The Good: -Light -Stiff -Detail -Different

    The Bad: Like a Thomson or a Spank Oozy Ltd., it's spendy but so is anything in this range.

    Overall Review: I threw this stem on a Knolly Endorphine. at first I was a little scarred about how close the bolts are drilled and how small they were. Rode it, all fears gone! The details are sick and must be seen up close to appreciate this stem.
