This stem is beautiful-will you be using it with a carbon handlebar? What is the stiffness of this thing?

Great looking stem! I have always liked the looks of the few polished alu stems that are out there. I would leave it like it is if the color works ok with the bike its going on.

Alu bolts on a stem......I think not. Only on the steerer clamp if at all. I think you would be hard pressed to find anyone here that uses alu on the face plate!

That's what i was just thinking. Alu isn't strong enough to be used for stem bolts. Use titanium instead.

First of all, Nice work!!! Definately a piece of art! It'd be interesting to see how it holds up. I'm by no means an expert but it looks a little thin in the clamp area around the front of the handle bar. Hope it works out for you! If it does we might be begging you to reproduce it :wink:

Very nice CNC work.

but have you tested this design for strength? You're not going to mount it on your bike and just go riding are you?
