I have seen right now in deivixcool Instagram the new stem , uff, direct challenge to AX Lightness Rigid. More nice both than MCFK and less beast than THM for no aero bikes

I think the THM is a pig, beauty is definitely in the eye of the beholder. Darimo is doing some interesting things but for a critical component I’d rather not be a crash test dummy.

I love my Darimo post, very elegant and impressive weight however have seen QC issues with the handlebars. All to be expected from a relatively young company at the bleeding edge.

Have the Darimo seat post and bars on my izalco, I don’t think the MCFK stem will be getting the flick, I think this new stem looks okay but for the face plate and attachments.....

A combo would be sweet, still annoyed I missed the Berk ones.

Agree. At least it's not as unattractive as earlier AX stems.

I love my darimo bars and post, and i was waiting for this release... but it has to be the world’s most unaerodynamic stem. Still a cool design though. Darimo is really thinking outside the box, and i love it.

I love my MCFK, but you cannot use certain "out front computer mounts" with the MCFK if they use the faceplate bolts....with this one you could. Interested.

An interesting setup (for me) would be the Darimo handlebar/stem wrapped into the integrated style that Calfee does-

When I first glanced at the front view pic, I thought there was a saw guide clamped to the bars. The stuff he is doing is pretty cool though, and good for all of us.

The BikeRumor article claims 6, 12, and 17 degree options will become available soon. Maybe I should have waited and haven't got a Hyperstem :lol:

I wish they had photos and supplied ti bolts, not sure the stock bolts would fit with this, do you know?

What QC issues came up with the bars? Agree a combo would look nicer and potentially stiffer and lighter.
