Just wondering if anyone has had a chance to try this new stem out yet. I will be needing to get a 120mm stem soon and was thinking about this stem. I am wondering if it lives up to the stiffness claims as it sure looks awesome. Not an extremely light stem but 110mm is 125g and suppose to be really stiff. I actually prefer the more blocky shape to the Enve stem.

Some drawbacks I see is that the bar clamp could be an issue if I wanted to go with some oval bars in the future. Also the Enve stem can be had for about $50 cheaper right now. A tried and true performer.

Also might just get another Zipp SC SL stem in 120mm beyond black.

I've mounted mine but I've still didn't try it.
But the first analysis i did, rocking the bar + brakes still , it seems very stiff in did.
And this is comparing with a Sl speed stem, that i had, being this one (ritchey) even stiffer.
It is also massive, thete is an other topic in here, with this subject.
As soon i do the 1st. Ride test i will let you know, lots of bad weather, This month in Portugal.
Also put a black ti bolts, about - 7g i think., didn't weight it.
Regards

I missed the other thread but see it now. The stem looks awesome. I will consider it if I decide to go with some standard shaped bars. I'm kind of thinking about trying the new Bontrager carbon bars that are aero and internal cable routing.
