Rated 5 out of 5 by Pumba Amazing finish and cnc logo
looks amazing with that machined logo and holds the handlebar really tight without leaving marks.
I took the 35mm one and i found it perfect on the hardtail i use for freeride and dirt.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous light et jolie
J'ai pris la potence en 35mm en bleu pour mon vtt de dirt. Elle est très bien, légère et jolie. Le seul point qui peut être, dans certain cas gênant, c'est que la partie supérieure n'est pas tout à fait horizontal. Dans le cas de l'utilisation d'une entretoise sur le dessus (dans le cas d'un pivot long, qui dépasse de la potence, pour une future revente par exemple), cela peut être un peu embêtant. Rien de bien grave, ça passe quand même.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Great with the spacer
I agree it should work out of the box.
I've been using it with a custom made spacer for 2 months and tightened steerer clamp bolts to 6.2/6.5 and works perfectly. Wide handlebar clamp is very good. Best stem I've owned so far. I'd say there's no problem with 50mm version as you can use any spacer on top.
Unfortunately, to keep it tight I had to use a spacer - can't put it on the top of the steerer tube like shown on the pictures. It'd look class without any spacers on top. Get in touch with SPANK - they'll sort you out. I was going to send it back as a warranty issue but actually after they gave me the spacer I do like it and am very happy with it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous I've also had problems keeping the 35mm one from twisting. It could possibly help to use a spacer on top of the stem but I have my doubts. I'll try contacting their customer support and see if they can send me a thinner spacer too.
At the price I paid one would expect this to work. It looks awesome (the reason I give it two stars instead of one) and as if it could take anything but there is very little material making out the contact surfaces on the inside - not worth trying friction paste.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous update for my previous bad review
I contacted spank about the stem not clamping with enough force and slipping on the steerer tube. They sent me a thinner spacer you can fit over the stem and push the stem a little lower so it's clamping with its entire clamping surface. And it clamps like a vice! Amazing. They sent me also 2 new bolts all the way from Taiwan, because i wrecked the old ones trying to tighten them up.
5 stars for brilliant customer service and good stem (in the end). Though it would be better if it could work out of the box

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous two stars - one for good looks and one for wide clamp. but this stem is very hard to clamp tight on the steerer tube. I tighten it to the stage that it CANNOT be tighter and still you can move the bars - the contact surface between the stem and steerer tube is to little.
Both - stem clamp and the steerer tube have been degreased before I put the stem on.
With 35mm version there's no chance to put a spacer on the top - nobody mentioned that.
This stem is dangerous to use.
I've put on my old sunline stem and tightened half as tight and it's securely clamping on the steerer tube.
Big nono to buying this one.
