Ergostem?

Anyone know or have experience with the Look Ergostem? Is it worth the money for TT/TRI? If not any recommendations on an alternative? Thanks

Heavy. Other stems may let you find the best position but nothing else has the adjustability of the Ergostem.

The Ergo stem is often used as a "fitting device", i.e. you play with the adjustments to find the position you like and then duplicate that position with an appropriate (and much lighter) fixed stem. Do you plan on modifying the bar position frequently for various ride types or just want to get it dialed in and leave it there?
