best stem produced so far imho.
Wrong! The extralite stems are THE best stems you can get and they just look so good!
Wrong!! extralite stem corners and edges look so weird. syntace f99 looks much better and the rubber inserts on the clamp is a very smart system. also its construction is much better/stronger, it has bigger bolts with normal allen hey. not so delicate as the extralite and well proven on test banks. also f99 comes with a great headset cap...
The look is subjective. I love the design of the extralite, the clean bolt-less rear end looks great on any bike and most importantly it's 20g lighter than the f99.. The small bolts arn't that fragle any more with the new torx head..
wrong again. look is not subjetive. I understand that extralite logo is very similar to parlee logo, that's the only thing you got right I guess, but the f99 looks much nicer, bolts behind look way better than in the middle, and are much more aero friendly. also f99 seems much more sturdy and although extralite might be a bit lighter, the diference is much less than 20g for sure. also syntace f99 logos are not so cheap and crappy as extralite. extralite logo looks more suitable for a tuned car from the fast and the furious movie.
