    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

    I almost bought the Race Face deus stem, it looks really nice but its polished aluminum, every single scratch, fingerprint or anything will show

    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.
