Nice 35degree stem
I swapped out the road bars for a 2.5 Jones bar and needed this to get the bar height I wanted. Nicely finished and reasonably priced. I never really liked road bars and never used the drops. I also have a set of Profile Design Jammer bars on this setup: gives me another riding position. Different strokes for different folks.
Dyed-in-the-wool "roadies" frown on this type of setup.
When you get old (I'm 75 yoa), unconventional bar setups make for more enjoyable and comfortable rides. I've ridden 30,000+ miles over the past three years.
Taking the pressure off
Sturdy construction looks like a stock piece raised bars approx. 1" as advertised.
more upright... priced right
Locates your bars approx. 1" taller for a more upright riding position, more comfortable, less aggresive position less neck strain.
Compared to the original 96 deg-70mm more parallell to the ground stem the reach of the 125 deg stem is approx 10mm shorter. The reach will change if you keep the same length stem.
This Origin8 steer stem arrived within 5 days of my order. It is a very attractive and durable in appearance. Installation on my Raleigh Talus 4, was simple. I also installed new 31.8mm x 270 mm handlebars with 1" of rise. This combination has moved the handlebars closer, and just enough higher to make the ride much more comfortable. I ride 40 hours a week, patrolling at University of Illinois.
Increased good looks.
