Looks like any stem will fit, just won't follow the lines of the frame. Not my cup of tea.


Possible weak point then?

certainly looks good. But it's full sus. At least with the blue bike you could replace with rigid corrected forks and have a light fast rigid mtb

Mondraker & Look! As pretty as they are surely they both come out of the same Tiawan factory? And what if you wan to change the stem - what then? One for the "city" boys me-thinks?

Hmm, they do look pretty awesome but, I am not sure if I would like one to be honest. I am a little on the fence.

Maybe it will grow on me. Or, maybe I will end up writing a strongly worded letter to the manufacturers asking them what narcotics they were on when they designed that frame/stem thing. And maybe ask for some... :roll:

Yeah, they probably picked them from the same catalogue.
