    Loaded Stems

    Anyone know anything about these? there does not seem to be much information. they are pretty light for the price. My riding style would be considered XC. Are they reliable? True to advertised weight?

    My LBS sells them, they (the employees) all use and love them. Along with bars and headsets, makes for a snazzy lookin front end. Can't give you anything more substantial than that, a little out of my price range for just a stem.
    The following short answers are good answers, but not the only ones for the question asked 29, Brooks, lugged, disc brake, steel, Campagnolo, helmet, custom, Rohloff, NJS, carbon, 31.8, clipless, porteur.

    They look pretty sweet. I really like the blue and orange ones. You could email them and ask about their warranty. If it's lifetime from breakage or something like that then I'd be pretty confident in it. If it's not much of one, like 90 days free from manufacturing defects, I wouldn't trust it without a pretty good amount of testimonial.

    I do notice it says the weight is with titanium hardware, but that it comes with steel. No idea if that would affect the weight much, though. You wouldn't think a few bolts would make a huge difference.
