I agree. Just had a look. Nice looking stems but logos cheapen it in my opinion.

I would be cautious about ti stems. I know of 3 Ibis titanium stems that broke.

I know of more Ax stems that failed than that. My opinion is that I'd be cautious of either. To be fair it's been a couple years for the Ax stems, so hopefully they've fixed the issues they were having, but for me I personally would not have one on my bike.

I think that typically it's best to match the stem to the seatpost.

I fitted a carbon stem on my Seven and the ride was noticeably better.

Bontrager XXX. Far from trendy but discrete and stiff enough.

The Ti stems I've got are rather noodly.

Why don't you wait for the MCFK Stem, that will come out next month.

The finish will matt/gloss UD OR 3K, that will fit any confirmation.
I'm waiting myself, to replace my Ritchey Superlogic C260, already in Carbon too.

Elfuinha that sounds a good idea. I did like the look of the ti stem but could be persuaded carbon.
