By far the best upgrade I’ve made to my bike!
I'm always on the lookout for mtb products that will help me shred.
This is by far the best upgrade I've made to my bike!
There is a bit of a learning curve. But, once I got used to the change, it has been fantastic (it took one ride, and some tinkering). My cornering has improved immensely and climbing has gotten much more ergonomic. Jumps and bunnyhops have become way less laboring. Descending at steep degrees is well under control too, and I'm letting off the brakes more.
The build quality is incredible. I am the heaviest rider I know of, and I charge fast and hard. I need components that are stout and strong. Once I put hands on the RR Stem, I knew I'd be fine. It's plenty strong, and very well made.
Overall, riding with the RR Stem has been a major improvement. I actually dread the idea of going back to a standard stem.
I highly recommend this for any rider that is interested in upgrading their mtb experience.
