Hi fellow Canyon owners

Just a quick heads up for you all

I have just recieved the brand new Ritchey Superlogic C260 carbon stem in 1 1/4" size :D

For a 130mm length the weight came in dead on 125 grams !

Not only saving almost 30grams from the 4 Axis stem it replaced it also matches perfectly
the matt black finish, sorry no pics just yet but it does look amazing .

Can you comment on the stiffness? Also, did they finally change the bolt outs out?

I have yet to ride it, but going by the cross section one would assume it will be stiff or at least due to its weight have a high stiffness to weight ratio.

As for the bolts they are a Torx head M4 bolt, very tiny indeed.

I've just ordered one of these for my Ultimate AL - cannot wait - fed up of the lack of choice for 1 1/4 steerer tubes. I'm still a little disappointed that there is only a 6deg version though!

Anyone know where I can order one that is willing to ship to the US?

That's good that they changed the bolts now. Before, people where stripping them because of how soft the bolts were. Anyway, got a ride report yet? :D

Stems not available from the UK distributor until later on in the year :(

Looks like I'm going in the direction of r2-bike.de…….

Just want to let everyone know, this stem can not mount aero road bars like the Zipp Vuka Sprint.

The way the mount works. You're require to slide the bar into it and with aero bars, the flat portion is too big.

that's a lot of cash for the 8 grams it'd save me over my 130 4axis or syntace....

Hi Jekyll man

My 4 axis came in at 155 grams in 130mm and the C260 came in at 125 for the same length, thats more than 8 grams, is yours a different version ? Just asking as I was surprised by the weight saved !

Cheers

Both my syntace and wcs weighed the same as far as i can remember when i changed it.
For obvious reasons i'm not taking it off just to do it again ;-)
