Bottom Line:   
Salsa SUL stem. This stem slips with a carbon handlebar. I called Kestrel about this and only 3 stems out there slip, Salsa makes one of them. The others are one bolt opening stems.

Strengths:    Good looking
Great design and workmanship

Weaknesses:    Not for weight weenies

Bottom Line:   
Great stem. Mine is a quill style, and I found that it's almost impossible
to find a nice looking quill stem with an open faceplate. The Pro Road
is not the lightest stem out there, but it's good looking, strong, and
unlike the Icon stem that came on my bike, it's quiet. The
workmanship as well is as good as it gets. The Pro Raod makes
the Icon look like a highschool shop project.

Strengths:    Large selection of reaches and rises. Easy installation. Appearance.

Weaknesses:    A little heavier than aluminum stems. More
expensive than some other brands.

Bottom Line:   
Great stem. I tried a bunch of different stems on my new Gios, and
this is the one that fit me best. Most threadless stems are designed
for oversized tube frames and look kind of chunky on a steel frame.
The SUL is cro-moly steel so it's smaller diameter than most aluminum
stems. It looks great and works great too. It comes in a variety of
reaches and angles, so it's easy to get your fit dialed in right. Plus,
Salsa can custom make stems if you need something out of the
