Has any one ridden this stem? Is it pretty stiff? I'm looking for a very stiff stem-handlebar combo that's light too. Any info would be great.

Mine broke (one of the first)
Now I use A Syntace F99 (without the Ti bolts) and Schmolke steerer which is in my opinion a much better combination

what did you do :? heard a lot about "bombproof" and
"really stiff" and thought about it for my cyclocross... :roll:
seems to be no good idea...
nothing.

Did everyting right (torque etc.). But the first series tended to brake (also written in Tour Magazin) since this experience I'll keep far from Carbon stems (in combination with Ti). Think the only right material is Aluminium. By the way stiffness is not always good since some flex generates comfort.
