    “Top Tier Stem”

    The Good: This stem is a work of art! Beautiful, strong and lightweight. Also, good range of sizes for just about every rider.

    The Bad: Retail price is high, that being said, there are several online retailers that you can buy it from for cheaper.

    Overall Review:

    Bought this stem a while back along with the turbine handlebar (725mm) I went from the stock 75mm stem to this 60mm and I LOVE it! Its very stiff and strong, I weigh 230 lbs and have NO issues with flex the shorter reach was actually pretty dramatic change in feel, but for me it was a good thing, quicker steering response and no noticeable change in climbing prowess. Great looks just seal the deal! I'd buy again in an instant.
