    “Strong stem”

    The Good: I was shocked at how lightweight this stem is. It actually was decently priced as well. I just recently bought this stem and I'm liking it so far. It study, as I'm running it with their carbon AmXC bars on my trail bike.

    The Bad: Nothing. It's a great stem

    Overall Review:

    This stem is shockingly light. Yet I still find it to be just as strong. I couldn't decide whether I wanted all carbon components so I went with their Titanium stem instead. I'm happy with it. It's the perfect length for me. I got mine in the 110mm.

    “Cocked and Loaded”

    The Good: Strong lite and great looking.

    The Bad: The anodizing scratches easily.

    Overall Review:

    About 3 years ago I found these guys when it was time to build up some new wheels. I build a set with their hubs, hoops and spokes.  They have been by far the best wheels I have ever used.  Once I started to use them I kept an eye on their other products.  When I build a new SS I needed  a stem and bars.  So the Loaded site I went.  I purchased the stem and some AMX Bars in green of course.  I have been running them for around 6 months on the trainer and 2 months in the dirt.  As always they well made and just what I needed.  Great product from a great US company.  Any time I have ever had an issue I just call them up and Anthony has always been a huge help.  Buy their products if you can.  They are all awesome.

    “What a hard body, beauty.”

    The Good: The finish is immaculate & fantastic. It is stiff and hangs on to those bars and the steerer tube for dear life.

    The Bad: I want more!!

    Overall Review: I was first attracted to the stem by looks. I took a chance with the purchase and glad I did. This is a light, stiff, solid, well honed stem. The machining is real nice, along with the color and the carbon face plate. I think it is a real value. it woul dbe hard to find another product up to the Loaded Precision standard.

    “Great XC Stem”

    The Good: Value Priced Lightweight

    The Bad: Nothing yet.

    Overall Review: I've XC raced on this stem all of the 2011 racing season. I have had no issues whatsoever. It is lightweight, strong, and comes in multiple colour options so your bike can look super pro. The price is remarkable competitive as well. Paired with the ligthweight Loaded carbon bar, this is a great lightweight cockpit combo at an extremely reasonable price. I give it a two big thumbs up!

    “Great looking bling for my 2 wheeled friend!”

    The Good: Light weight, super easy to install, looks great

    The Bad: None at the moment

    Overall Review: While this is my first stem upgrade, the color alone makes the silver bike I have stand out! I got the blue color for my Specialized XC Pro & also got the blue seat post collar as well as the skewers. Everything seems to be good quality & the customer service by David was excellent. I'm a newbie at upgrades & he helped me without making me feel silly about my "newbie" questions. Loaded rocks!!!
