    Stem choice help

    I'm wanting to shorten up my cockpit a couple of cm, and looking at shorter aftermarket stems. My GF's stock replacement/Bontrager parts list for 4X the cost of what these do and what I'd be looking for in that brand isn't on fleabay right now.

    Can anyone comment on these brands/deals that I'm considering? Yes, Chinese I know but what isn't. I threw in the last one in CF just for grins- the deal seems too good to be true, but it sure looks cool.

    I've bought a bunch of stuff from abaxo and bikewagon and everything was as advertised, flawless and in retail packaging. No blems, no B-stock (that I can tell).

    Scyclops is right. I have bought from bikewagon recently for bike supplies off E-bay. I have no issue with E-bay like alot of people do. Great place to get deals. Just research the seller's feedback and bid/buy with confidence.

    Just so you know..............most things are Chinese or Taiwanese made in the bike market. Same old story....................cheap labor and for businesses, a great profit margin to move their facility to these countries.

    FSA; Race Face; Truvativ and the like are name brand components in the bike world. Don't be afraid of them! In fact, Truvativ is SRAM products.

    Thanks guys. In just looking at it I had a feeling the Truactiv was good stuff (FSA too), so I just placed my order. Now the $55 CF unit - not so sure
