Joystick Bicycle Components Builder Stem

“A stem is a stem” I often hear muttered from the mouths of even the most seasoned mountain biker, and I guess for a large percentage of the market, this could be true. Two pinch bolts on the steerer and four holding your bars firmly in place on the front (hopefully). Every now and then a product comes along that makes…

Bontrager Rhythm Pro Stem 50mm

In A Glance The Rhythm Pro from Bontrager boasts that it is XC light and yet all-mountain tough. It’s certainly one of the lightest stems in the test and it’s pretty stiff when you ride it too. We noticed zero flex or movement and the wide front plate offers an excellent contact point with the bars. The steerer clamp has…

CrankBrothers Iodine 3 Stem 50mm

In A Glance With a carbon faceplate it’s no wonder the Crank Brothers Iodine 3 wins the contest in terms of weight. This all-mountain stem has had a pretty major update this year, and the steerer clamp wedge has been refreshed to be a little more traditional with a 2-bolt clamp design. There is still a wedge there, but it…

DMR Bikes Defy 35 Stem

In A Glance The Defy Stem from DMR is their first foray into the new 35mm standard. We all know that the larger size offers the opportunity for a lighter and stiffer bar, but where DMR are concerned it isn’t just about that.
