Lovely stems those Hopes. I've just sold a 70mm DH in gunsmoke only 'cos I got a Straitline stem for half price.

The Hope is probs 100g lighter but just as solid.

Like a Monkey Grip? Never really trusted that type over four bolts TBH..


nah, it kind of slots in, and has four bolts, clamps at the rear though, but with a nice rounded design, its a very well designed bit of kit.

Im not a massive fan of that Hope one personally, I quite liked the older version, this one looks a little steroidal, like it was done by someone with a 15 coffee's a day habit on a CNC machine <adopts the voice of Animal from Police Academy 2> "jjjust give it mooore like, um, ha ha, er, like big machiney bits, and aaagh, you know, um, like, machine it"

still, bet its light and stiff :)

I was going to suggest extralite. But it does not come in silver or pewter.

Looks a bit lightweight too.. Not sure it's be the last thing to fail on the Heckler :wink:
