Easton Havoc Direct Mount stem for 35mm bar. Great shape other than a small scratch on face plate on one side, visible in photos. Face plate bolts included. I can also include what I believe are mounting bolts, but I'm not sure.

I think Danny Hart's new mondraker is an upgrade for him. I'd also prefer the Marzocchi suspension, Renthal cockpit and Mavic wheels. Same tires and drivetrain.
