What happened to Syncros?
Their new stuff is horrid.

Same goes for Ibis. Their old bikes and parts are works of art
Their new stuff is disgusting

Gorgeous, love the polish, and the look, shame its too long for me though, just curious, why the shift to syncros? For uniformity ??

You can't view a stem like a BB or hub. It isn't a wearing component.

ibbz, what length are you looking for?
going short at 110/120 can turn a nice stem into something just wrong.

135 with that rise is probably 130 at zero?
