StarStarStarStarStar Nice 35degree stem

by
Ownership: two months
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

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.

Cons

Dyed-in-the-wool "roadies" frown on this type of setup.

Other Thoughts

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.

Pros

Locates your bars approx. 1" taller for a more upright riding position, more comfortable, less aggresive position less neck strain.

Cons

None

Other Thoughts

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.

Pros

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 comfort.
Increased control.
Increased good looks.

Cons

None
