Rated 4 out of 5 by jmill does the job
Stiff, cheep and not a bad weight. The heads of the bolts sit quite proud which I've never been a fan on but apart from that really pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Super stiff, stunning, light
Got it some 18 months ago in a 45mm white 1.5 option from CRC. Super stiff stem, very well made, and absolutely beautiful! If you're in the market for a stem for your FR rig, look no further - the Respond stem is all you will ever need! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous super short perfick for my ragley!
bought it in the 45mm 10degree 1.5" size my ragley troof, soooooper stiff, not particilly heavy, high torque bolts used so no rounded/snapped bolts or slipping bars/stems!
looks p.i.m.p. in white
only issue had was using this with nukeproof spacers, had to file a little bit of material off the spacer to make it fit in the groove for the spacers just visible in the photo, other than that i'm sure this component will out live the rest of the bike...

got this stem a while back, was looking for something solid that would take to any trail, i'm a big bloke and am reasurred by how stiff and solid this stem is, it's not too heavy and is a real fit and forget item. One of the best features is the bar clamp which is really well thought out- plus proper solid bolts mean no rounding like a certain v1 stem........all in all if your after a stem that will happily take in dh, fr and am, for not much money...this is it
