My X2 - 110mm with +/-10mm rise came in at 147g - just as claimed. You can see weights for all their stem lengths here:

The stem looks nice as. Just wondering if its welded or if that's a reflection near the steerer clamp? Nice little article on pez too.

Just a reflection... It's not welded. All machined... quite a bit of internal machining that I've not shown in my photos. Looks like someone did their homework when designing it.

Those bolts don't look like Ti-bolts. You might catch a few grams by replacing them :idea:

Very nice looking stem though!!
