Recently the board software has been updated and there are some known bugs/failures:
- Avatars are currently not being displayed
- Tapatalk connection is currently broken

Those bugs will be fixed ASAP (next few days) as they are unfortunately more serious than expected.

If you find more errors please post it here: http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=139062

a pretty light piece of equipment that I have not heard too much about. Anyone out there use it? Is it OK for a not-so-light rider?(180 pounds and losing weight as we speak) Thanks in advance.

I don't know. I've had one sitting here still in the box for two months now waiting on my Colnago C-50 to arrive. Once it gets here I'll be able to give you an opinion. :wink:

I wouldn't trust magnesium stems, they're too prone to breaking!

I have a Mag00, I really like it. Its really stiff, and a lot stouter than the ITM THE STEM. If you like it, I'd say its a sensible buy, although expensive (compared to the syntace, but syntace isn't oversized)

When we are at it: can the following entry be true?

Category Stems
Manufacturer Deda Elementi
Model Mag 00
ProdYear 2003
Size 120 mm
Claimed weight 98 g
Real weight 146 g
Comments 1 1/8", for 31.8 mm bars

It received it a few weeks ago and released it, altough I really had (and still have) doubts about it.

I actually weighed that Florian, it was from late last summer. I couldn't beleive it either. It wasn't the scale either, it is accurate. The Mag is an over-priced stem that is not anywhere close to claimed weight. Deda has a real problem with claimed weights. On average they seem to be off by at least 25%.

Sad but really true.
Deda occupies the last place with an average +12.64% on all their products listed here on Weight Weenies. :(

Is it probably a '01 or '02 model? It seems as if they weighed less.
