 Very slick and pretty, but the only real downside is you can't install top spacers without shaving a bit of metal off. And when you need to get it off or tweak you bars you need to get both bolts out and undo the wedge completely which takes a bit of time. Otherwise perfect, highly recommended for dirt/ street/ park riding.

 just bought this stem at a bargin price of £32 in the x-ray colour it looks very good a bit heavier then other stems of the same price but the detail on it is far better then any other stem I have seen so if your looking for a new stem for your dirt/street/park bike of have a dh bike with a set of 888. This can be directly mounted so get it if your in the Market for a stem

 This is a seriously sweet stem. When i first bought it i was not very excited it was a lot of money and i couldnt get it to stay straight. But when i finally torqued it down correctly and it was all adjusted i love it and never worry about my knees anymore.

 Best stem to steerer fixing mechanism surely? Love the bolt-less backside too. The machining is perfect as far as I can see. This is the best stem I have owned in 15 years, best in quality, function and looks. Some UK resellers have slammed prices on them too (June 2010) so shop around, ignore the £119 RRP, you can pay half that.

 here's the deal with this stem it looks super clean but it weights more than a standard clamp mount and it is not easy to ajust

 Had this on my Dj bike for a while till i broke my bike. Sick stem, very clean, clamps tight. I like it.

Designed for the ever growing long travel forks and those who test their limits. The patent applied design can provide many times the clamping force of traditional split clamp designs, shaving weight and setting another standard. There is plenty of room for design improvements in this industry, and we will bring it to you without any hype.Lightweight radical appearance with new clamping standards Simplistic design provides an unparallel clamping force Will not crush a steer tube at max clamping force Vertical wedge clamp maintains constant equal contact, 360 degrees around the steer tube Motocross inspired method of bar clamping starting with the top two then torquing the bottom
