Strengths:    Light
stiff
excellent clamping


Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
This review is for the 126g Prolite 120mm stem. When companies like Easton and Ritchey are charging upwards of $80 for the same stem...it really makes you wonder where the value is in a NAME-brand product.

Not only is the Alpha Q stem lighter than Ritchey 4-Axis and Easton EA90...but its also made IDENTICAL using the same 3-D forging process of the two big names!

I have ridden all three and honestly cannot see any difference in stiffness, power transfer or other noticeable attributes.

Dollar-for-dollar, the Alpha Q/True Temper stem is EQUAL of not BETTER than the ITM, Ritchey, Deda, and Easton stems!

A proposal: Merge the Tour of Utah and US Pro Challenge

Listening to the deserved complaints about TV coverage and NBC's reluctance to put money into bettering technical aspects of the show, I'm proposing the merger between two, IMO, competing tours (despite them being two/three weeks apart). Make the new race 10-14 days long. 1) It allows more e ... Read More »

I'm confused - Does my 2014 Roubaix Pro frame have a BB30 or PF30 bottom bracket?

Trying to install a Praxis BB to use my Quarq Cinco 110BCD with Sram 975 cranks into my frame. I need to install the Praxis BB and need the tool, and I've read that the frame is both on separate occasions - PF30 and BB30. Then I've read that they're the same?!? Any help would be great. I'm ...
