    Bottom Line:   
    Stem is pretty excellent in all regards. Only reason I am writing this is to worn about the soft allen screws. Both my face plate screw heads stripped. And yes I was using the correct size and being careful. Only happened after I removed it a few times to adjust height. Not a huge issue, but thought I would let people know.

    Headset (Upper & Lower Race) question

    Are the upper head tube races and lower head tube races interchangeable? I mistakenly bought a VP headset, with an upper HT race of 41.4MM & a lower head tube race of 44M. Let’s say, I compounded my problem by buying 2 such headsets. Assuming that my bike needs a 41.4MM for both upper and lower ... Read More »

    Race Report: My first ever cyclocross race

    Thought there may be some interest in another newbie's first race experience.... I started racing crits this summer, and love mountain biking for fun, so it kind of made sense to check out 'cross. I put an older dura-ace 9-speed single drivetrain and some tubulars on my 80s Peugeot road frame and ... Read More »

    First cross race of the season. No *pop* in my legs.

    This is my third season of cx. I'm about 6 weeks into training for cx this year. I raced endurance XC all summer. I've not changed anything diet wise or training wise in the last few weeks. I haven't been sleeping a whole lot this week, though . If the race would have been a time trial effort, I ... Read More »
