Rated 5 out of 5 by GravityRider Great angles for that 'up' look!
Truth be told I bought this, paired with the Truvativ Holzfeller Riser Bars for a friend with a neck injury...his neck injury limits his head raise and on a MTB, that's a real issue.
Once he had it on, he was in the game...both the rise and angles helped his body positioning and allowed him a more comfortable head raise/view.
He rides all the time now, and thanks me every time he sees me...LOL!
Well designed, stylish, the graphics are the heat and as always, with a price that can't be beat!

Rated 4 out of 5 by urastus Nice stem with useful rise
This stem is well made and more than strong enough for trail / am use. I bought the 60mm stem. I was using a 90mm stem. I wanted shorter and higher. Without the rise I would have had to buy a bar with 3" rise. There aren't many good bars at 750mm wide with 3" rise. I will use these again on a couple of other bikes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous The 60 mm
First off very quick/immediate dispatch from C.R. I had recently bought a new bike and went one size up more than I needed to so I wanted to reposition my handle bars.
This is the only stem I have seen at this length with such a sharply pronounced upraise this stem repositions my handle bars roughly back 2 and up one inch.
It is a lot lighter and has a less bulky build than my original 105 also it has a very strong and tight grip to both the handlebars and the bike frame.
I would say the sense of steering control or ease of steering control is a little less with this stem also I think it is more tricky to align the steering to your front wheel with it.
But overall I have to say I love it to bits it does exactly what I want and need
which is as described. So no way will it be coming off my bike! I expect to use and enjoy it allot.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous cool looking stem, very light and gives great rise and controll BUT the one i got wasnt machined great and my handlebars are not fully straight.
