I have a Vita Sport and really enjoy(ed) it! Stems, or handlebars for that matter are easily replaceable and don't have to be at all pricey. If that is your biggest concern, a good bike shop should...

Lol, the American Idol syndrome. Adding vocal acrobatics seems an ego thing. It just gets in the way of the song.
