    Strengths:    Stiff and no creaking.

    Aggressive angle when it's flipped down.

    Weaknesses:    A little heavy, but no big deal since it's stiff and quiet. I'd give it a 5 if it had the strength of a Thompson. Nothing else is like a Thompson. Thompson is the best.

    Bottom Line:   
    Stiff and no creaking. 17/73 degree angle is aggressive when flipped down.

    Strengths:    Stiff, good looks

    Weaknesses:    If anything it would be weight, but Bontrager makes a lighter version.

    Bottom Line:   
    This stem is nice and stiff and looks good too. Even in the hardest sprint it seems too stay solid, no squeaks or clicks. Could probably be a little lighter, but I will glady sacrifice a few grams for security and peace of mind that it is not going to break on me.

    Choosing new bars - Race lite aero?

    I'm in need of a new set of drop bars, I'm not getting on with the ones that came on the bike mostly because the transition from the hoods dips before coming backup to meet the tops. I'd much prefer a smooth transition from the tops into the hoods. I've come over from mountain biking (had the road ... Read More »
