Recently the board software has been updated and there are some known bugs/failures:
- Avatars are currently not being displayed
- Tapatalk connection is currently broken

Those bugs will be fixed ASAP (next few days) as they are unfortunately more serious than expected.

Let's cut a new member some slack.


Zipp, 3T and Ritchey 4-Axis. The Ritchey is pretty light if you replace the bolts with titanium ones.

I have 3T, Ritchey and Thomson x2. Not many out there!

Thomson is heaviest, but looks very well made in CNC.

Agree on cutting some slack sometimes.

Bontrager makes a complete line of 17deg. stems in their RXL line (aluminum), but nothing listed in their RXXXL line (carbon) for consumer use. Claimed weights range from 111g (75mm, white) to 141g (120mm, black). I'm sure weight can be saved by stripping off the paint.
