I have been running this stem for AM duties for 7 months now and it is superb (the shortest one).
Light, stiff and with the white faceplate looks pretty sharp too.
I have no idea how that other reviewer managed to bend the bolts? Madness.
This is a very good chain device. It took me 20 minutes to fit it and then it really is fit and forget. Like all chain devices everything is in the alignment and this device allows for you to fettle it into perfect position. It's also an attractive buy if you have an expensive AM frame where you don't want a taco putting all the load of a botched landing onto weak ISCG mounts - I'd rather trash a
Fantastic wheels! They look awesome, loads of options and extra's absolutely no problems what so ever! Pretty light too and they've survived a damn nasty downhill crash I had and are still more or less perfectly true!!! Cant beat them!
