Here's That £300 3D-Printed Titanium Stem You Wanted
@thewanderingtramp: compositepro said his Ferrari only get 11mpg..... My point was that that would only be disappointing if Ferrari had sold the car as being economical. This stem is being touted as light and stiff, yet does neither of those better than many cheaper alternatives. The Ferrari at least drives and handles and sounds awesome compared with a poverty-spec Civic, but this stem only looks 'better' than its competitors. Sure someone will still buy the stem, but that doesn't validate the marketing.

@Compositepro: aye, there's a reason I'm not in marketing.

@Compositepro: yeah, 3d print is wonderful! But FFS use it to its potential. And if you're not going to do that, please don't harp on about the fancy optimisation etc; just tell us it's made to look funky because that's fun and you've got a £500k printer sat around gathering dust.

@Compositepro: the thing is, Ferrari don't market their cars as econo-boxes. This stem blares on about high tech design and manufacture, but is no better than an item that can be banged out in their thousands from comparatively basic materials using conventional manufacturing methods and conventional design...

Dear Mythos, If you want to make something stiff, don't put holes in it. Sincerely, Everyone with a brain. What a waste of time/money/energy/metal.

Abbey Bike Tools Celebrates 10 Years with Titanium & Walnut
@danger13: most likely the steel would cut the Ti, of course. But it depends on things...
