    Only 90 dollars? That's a bargain. Other people buy $300 wheelsets to disfigure their bikes.

    Lovely sharp corners on that thing! Why don't they make a pointed stem cap to go with it? Hope no one ever gets in an accident with that stem on their bike. That sucker could be lethal.

    I saw this on Prolly's site. That thing looks like a cinder block for your bars.

    I love it from a graphic perspective, but in every other way I think it's pretty dumb. Especially for practical considerations, it's terrible.

    Another reason I want to have a machine shop. Looks like it would be simple to build.

    But what if I want my bike to look like something out of Transformers?
    It would look great on this bike.

    That'd be entirely the easiest stem to make, ever, out of a piece of billet aluminum.
