Rated 3 out of 5 by Williamtes Looks great. But the single bolt doesn't stay tight.
Very nice looking stem from cb and very reasonably priced. But the single bolt doesn't stay tight for long. I did one run on a fairly rough track then the next morning just rolled of a kerb outside my house and the bars spun 90 deg and I just about face planted the ground. Make sure you keep that bolt done up tight!

Rated 4 out of 5 by CaptainSL0W Solid, good design
The Stem was really easy to install and looks great on the bike. Feels really solid when riding. The clamping system is a little different, but works well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by stuckinthedesert Not an AM stem!
This stem is described as an All-Mountain stem however it DOES NOT hold up to aggressive trail riding on technical terrain. The single pinch bolt securing it to the steerer does not hold tight and I have had to adjust numerous times after the bars twisted while navigating technical sections of trail. After 1 month of retorquing and lock-tighting bolts I am replacing it. It is priced quite reasonably and may work fine for casual trail riding but it is not adequate or safe for my style of riding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Beetal23 nice stem at a nice price :)
bought the 60mm Iodine 2 stem to replace the 120mm that came with my new xc white pro and it's perfect. easy fit with one clamp torx and looks good, quality is also good and i recommend this product to anyone looking to shorten the reach of there ride, also at around 25€ it's a DEAL :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by 666inches Nice but...
Disappointed by a Crankbrothers product once again.
This stem is nice looking, that's the only positive point I'd say. But a MTB stem is rarely dedicated to home decoration.
Except that, the bolts untighten all the time, which causes some worrying cracks when you pull the bar (happening pretty often in MTB though...)
Moreover these bolts are Torx bolts. Why couldn't they be Allen bolts like most stems and MTB components? It results that even with a good Torx key the bolt gets damaged after a short while, as you often have to retighten them like said before.
Then, last but not least: this clamping system with just one bolt is everything except efficient. It doesn't hold well the fork steering, so expect some strange and unpleasant consequences.
Conclusion: this is the last Crank"Bother" product I buy. After rubbish pedals, bar, quick release, dropper seatpost, this stem is the "too much" product.
Better off pay more, but to have something serious.

Rated 5 out of 5 by doedels Well made!
I went with the 65mm option and it feels great! Down from 90mm, and coupled with a riser bar, it has changed the overall feel of my bike.
It feel very well made, although a bit strange that the back is left open. Very simple install and only one skrew to hold it to the fork.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Neerim Good all round
Just put this on to replace my old worn out one. Looks great, fits well and nice weight. Got the shorter 65mm and is perfect for the job.
