Is there a reason you picked this to upgrade? Are you currently having trouble handling your bike compared to a different stem/bar combo? I'd have to advise against upgrading for the sake of upgrading, otherwise you could save up and buy a new fork or wheelset or something else similar.

Basically, how do you know a new stem will make your bike handle better to you?
