Many thanks to everyone for their feedback on the lengths, angles and colors. The results have surprised us.
@weeracerweenie: Thank you too for the kind words!

±8º was chosen for sitting right in between ±!6º and ±10º. However, the Wert stem geometry is slightly different than most, being that the top of the stem is lower than most. Stack height is 37.5mm as is the diameter of the stem barrel. Measured from the center of the stack height, the angle does sit around ±6º for a typical stem length. It still puts the bar lower than most stems with a taller stack height and, when replacing a typical stem with a Straight Shooter, there is room for a small spacer to bring the handlebars to a similar height. It makes for a more versatile fit compared to other stems.

Yes. Last August there was a meeting with manufacturer who pioneers a revolutionary manufacturing technology for titanium and possibly steel. The problem is not getting around to make a design to suit this technology. The roadmap for various Wert Cycling part releases definitely includes cranks. First the Straight Shooter stem, then the Perimeter Post followed by either pedals or MTB/road wheels. Once those are launched, cranks get their turn. So when more of you buy Wert stuff, it'll supply us a more ample R&D budget to release new parts sooner.
Meanwhile, check out the latest.

For production stems we’ve been given an estimated launch date of late May this week. We’re now waiting for confirmation so we ask you for just a little more patience. The Straight Shooter stem will be more than worth the wait. Other news is that we will probably offer custom stem lengths for a reasonable surcharge, although these details also await confirmation. Meanwhile, check out this handlebar clamp area improvement to be implemented in production stems. It'll increase stem stiffness for more efficient out-of-saddle efforts.
