Great bike parts are like food, you really can't go with out it. Yeah some food tastes bad and it might be good for you, but it's all about the stuff that looks good, tastes great and leaves you full. The same can be said for picking out new parts for your ride or riding gear for your self this winter. Look for the stuff that stokes you out and will make your set up the way you want it to be. Here is the latest installment of Fresh Meat for your dinning pleasure.Chromag BOX Stem
