The stem is in


I've got the stem at last! Its a 6 degree rise 100mm long and I think i got the right size, i feel so much more comfortable it felt like when i got those spacers out of my teeth.

Sweet. I no longer run my T.R bars, they are flats...
Wish I had a nice new T.R stem....mines old.

.....well, I got a T.R welded freaking frame..good enough.
Good company\designer to go with, I'm sure it will perform very well.

You do realize he makes headsets as well. Quality? I run one of the earliest T.R Logic headsets, 15 yrs old, runs perfect. I'd like a Chris King, but the old component just will not wear out!

I might replace with the same when it does, tested, passed.

Very nice. At first the picture didn't show up when I read that and I thought you got a 100mm stem for freeriding im thinking to myself "smooth move ex-lax" but that is a beauty for road riding! Awsome buy.

its for my XC rig, i ride road with it 5 days a week and trails on the weekends so its the perfect size for me. It cost me 59.99 from Cambria bike outfitters + 11 to ship. Im pleased, and its really light, scary light.

I want a red face red stem that gives me more rise then the K-Nine? one I have now. Need to shorten the reach. But alas, I know I will never replace mine.

haha

Yeah... the polished aluminum will probably show stuff but I don't think the stem is very succeptable to trail scratches given its location on the bike. That said, I love my matte-finished Race Face SYStem.
