Now I know why lots of people spend a small fortune on stems that prob won't be any different to the cheaper options. Having spent all day trawling websites I have almost been beaten into submission and I'm one click away from buying an overpriced stem. :evil:
I will need bars as well in near future.

All I want is a 60 or 70mm at most, oversize 31.8 clamp, 1 1/8 inch reasonably lightweight stem fro general xc and trail centre riding. Every stem I find reviewed that matches the above equirements is either discontinued or out of stock. I have looked at.....

Carbon cycles as recommended by Supersonic
out of stock until FEB!!!

Race Face Ride XC but can't get Ride bars to match!

On-one 456 stem

Carbon cycles do have a carbon one at 31.79 but wasn't wanting to pay that much for just a stem!!!
