Construction is on the Sinz Pro Lite stem is front loading, hollow, forged alloy
. The overall quality is pretty good, however we don’t like the bolts. This is an imported stem,and as such comes with the cheaper grade bolts. These bolts are common on may imported stems and they have a tendency to strip very easily and dolt bite as well as grade 8 chromolly bolts found on US made stems.
If you are trying to build a super lite bike, this stem will help you shave off a lot of weight. But we would recommend using aftermarket bolts like those made by 43 Hardware. If you really want to go crazy you can get the hollow bolts.
This stem is available in a very cool bead blast black finish, or a high gloss white. Retail is about $60, which is a bit high for an imported stem, but is the lightest stem you can by, so if your really concerned about weight, it is a good choice.
