I've just bought the 100mm "7" about 4 weeks ago.
The side with the white/grey graphics fits my bike,
but I don't like the red side, so, I'll apply some acetone...
anyway, I'm very happy with it:

Can someone please explain to me the difference between the UNO, 6, 7 and ASA-105?

It is the ASA-105 that appeals to me (lightest and minimal graphics) but I can't find them for sale anywhere.

Is there a reliable discount supplier for these stems other than that auction site?

From what I've observed and understand, there are two main types, both from the same mold
- the 6 is made from AL6061 grade aluminium, AS-025 is the old graphics of the 6, while
- the 7 is made from AL7050 grade aluminium, ASA-105 is the old graphics of the 7.

Just curious if anyone has any long term experience with this stem. The price and weight are pretty fantastic, I'm just worried about overall durability and noticeable stiffness issues. Any feedback would be great!

Well my use goes back to June of last year and all is fine. I liked the stem so well my crossbike sports one too. Light, stiff and cheap.

Need to figure out what happened to my pictures on the first page.

This is nice. Are you guys just getting them from Taiwan? No one in the US selling them?

Thanks. Would you be able to let me know which buyer you purchased from? The one I found selling them is estimating a March delivery.

Missed this. They did have a longer date but delivered quick. Also it is Chinese new Year which will slow things down right now.

I was thinking of going for an ibis stem, but I'm unsure of the stack height on it. I need one with a lower stack than my fsa one that I have on now.
