  • It might be a really old model that's not listed anywhere anymore. Might also be an OEM model that isn't sold separately. What really matters is the length and weight of the stem, and some pictures for reference about the rise (unless you can accurately measure it). At the end of the day, the important thing is finding a person interested in a stem that looks like this, has these parameters and costs whatever you ask for it.
    And in all honesty, the 10 dollar alu stems from China work just as well, so I wouldn't ask too much for it.

    EDIT: Oh, and BTW, measure the holes as well. It's hard to get a real idea about the size of that thing and knowing what fork and bars this is made for is kinda important. Might be a BMX stem for all I know - lots of them are boxy as opposed to round.

    There are a number of similar cheap generic stems, they are usually pretty heavy as well.

    Just get the basic measurements as CD sais, bar diameter (looks 25.4mm), length between the hole centres, steerer diameter (28.6mm or 1 1/8" almost certainly) and a guesstimate of the rise angle.

    Thanks for the input guys, much appreciated. I believe it is for 25.4mm bar. It is pretty sturdy 467 grams ! I have found similar looking Woodman Components stems but none with the strengthenin struts [if that's what they are called]. Yes I think it is a few years old and possibly for BMX [Downhill?] I may be wrong but looks CNC made, which back then were expensive.
    I've no problem listing just would like a model to list it as. Again many thanks, LimitedGarry & The Rookie
    Cheers, Scurry

    Half a kilo for a stem?

    I'm no weight weenie, but that's an anchor.

    Tungsten I would think!

    My current stem is 88g........less than 1/5 the weight of that one!

    Sorry my mistake, it's a lot lighter than that, it is actually only 437 grams lol.

    I'm more into road stuff and know little about off road, I'm sure there was a reason for it [what ever that was].
    I looked on the Weightweenies site and there are a few Woodman Components stems all heavy but they're all shorter ones, this one is 100mm.
    I think they should have named it not Rockster but Woodmans Girder ,

    Thanks all, Scurry

    Its probably worth a fair bit as scrap with that much to weigh in!
