I needed a different angle for a stem to put on my fixie. So I purchased this for the sum $22.65 shipped from a certain website that begins with E. Advertised at 116 grams.

The finish is very good and it felt stiff enough on a short ride.

Then adding titanium bolts and washers from Toronto cycles more than doubled what I had into it. So for a grand total of $47.15 this is what you get:

Not bad for a budget build.

Bolts are M5 X 18mm. Toronto has bolts with the small washers installed.

I am thinking of getting one of these for my 29er with a wider bar. I really like the weight/price on these stems. Accetone the stem and ti bolts and you have a winner.

There's quite a few different models on ebay, I was quite confused when ordering but ended up with the Kalloy Uno Nine: http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-2013-KALLOY ... 1065108370?

Hasn't arrived yet, but will definitely be taking the acetone to it!

Do you even need the ti washers? Dump them and less weight

From looking at loads of listings, the 7 seems to be the lightest - the 9 is listed for MTB as well as road, so I assume it's slightly stronger? 6 and 7 seem to be for road, with 7 being a higher grade / lighter alloy. I ordered a 7.

Chances are they're identical with different graphics though. :D

I'll be hitting mine with the acetone and have ordered some Ti bolts too, will weigh it once it's here.

Well it arrived today! 10 days from Taiwan to the UK.

The 'nine' I bought is in fact a 'six' according to the graphics. But I'm not complaining, weight is only 3g over. It's a 90mm.
