up till now, I have associated Kalloy with run of the mill low end seat posts, cheap but heavy but it seems they have branched out into stems, light ones too, best of all, light on the pocket. :mrgreen:

if the weights are to be belived, we have:

Uno 7 109g £ 21
Uno 9 110g £ 21
Ultalight 116g £ 19
Uno 6 127 g £ 18

which does seem mind blowingly good value for buying some lighntess, I suspect being so new, nobody has tried on yet?

for example

Got this one for my Daughter's Scott Contessa 24 jr.
OS, 70mm, 93.5 grams, $27.00 CAD & free shipping.
Replaced the steel bolts with 6 Ti bolts, 83.8 grams, $15.00 from from torontocycles.com
Great weight for the money.

Kalloy / Hsin Lung makes stems for lots of different brands. Their UNO-branded stuff doesn't have the cachet of the more popular companies, but the UNO stuff works well, doesn't weigh a ton, and is very inexpensive.

Well you might have saved 20 grams, but I never had anything from Syntace that I didn't really like. I am not trying to pick a fight and I might really like the Kalloy Uno if I had one, but everything from Syntace is generally very good. That said, if the Kalloy stuff is as good as or even 90% as good as Syntace for a lot lower price, I would definitely be a customer.

No -17 . When you a start going to 120/130 the weight is just ok . It's only the short stems that are really light .

My 100mm was 97 gram, with steel bolts, so 120mm should be around 110gr? So about 105gr with ti bolts. That is still light for the money for me? It was the Uno9 btw. Haven ridden it yet.

I've been using a 60mm Grade 2.0 stem on my 29er for two months and like it very much. It was 90 grams or so (don't remember exactly) with the original steel bolts and I removed the logos with paint stripper. Kalloy doesn't recommend the Grade 1.0 stems for MTB use, only road.

Logos on these UNO stems are easily removed with acetone.

great news - I was wondering about how to do that - the 110 mm stem I received weighs 115 g (is identical to the one in the photo) but has too much logo.

... but it has "for road use" printed on the stem despite being advertised as mtb hmmm..... :noidea: .... since I don't do big jumps and have suspension forks, I don't think that is an issue.

thanks to Prefendreu, he gave me the tip when i asked him after seen his stem. It works in black anodized ones. the white ones may have the lacker layer on top of the logos, maybe. i haven't checked it but, it maybe not possible to remove the logos with acetone in the white ones. please check it and let us know.
