Wish this came UD. Just bought the new AX lightness 31.8 stem. I prefer mcfk products as they've worked better for me.

Ugggh...that's just one more reason for me to replace my Ti post with their UD one.

been lurking on the mcfk website for a while for this....hopefully it will prove more reliable than the ax offerings...and way cheaper at 300 euros...:)

vaguely reminiscent of the NoRa design in some ways, which is/was a great custom (if uber-pricey) stem

That is one beautiful stem. Should be much stiffer than the AX with its Ritchey c260 clamp design. Still a bit too rich for my blood, though.

Hmmm, i might have to splurge if the ax proves to be flexy.

I guess I could go to their website but thats almost like cheating. What angles will it come in. I really like my current 80 degree. I would not want more rise but could live with a -17.

It comes in 6 or 17 (±).

I think it looks great, I like the design.

Looks really nice, and the weight is great, but the price is redonculous. Also, at that price the logo should be applied using a better process than just a sticker.

The UD seatposts are art. Can't wait to see how the stem looks.... which is to say it'll be quite nice.

Great to see a -17° version too (not that I'll go for such boutique components).
Interesting that there's a 70mm though, would have thought longer stems (no 120mm) would be more common with the target audience.
