A well made adjustable stem

PostedFebruary 25, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
Cons: Heavy
I bought this adjustable stem to give me a more comfortable riding position. it did that perfectly. It is very well made - if a bit weighty - and straightforward to fit.

Best example I've seen of an adjustable stem.

PostedSeptember 12, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality
Very secure mounting mechanism does away with flex and looseness in other designs.
Finish and design as you'd expect of a Ritchey component.
Excellent.

Ritchey Adjustable Road Stem

PostedApril 7, 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable
Cons: Heavy
Does what it's supposed to do. This allows you to change your riding position and can be a great improvement.
It's certainly not a lightweight but those extra grammes won't slow you down.
Watch out when you install it : you need to disasemble it completely, choose your angle and then reassemble it. Takes much more time than installing a regular stem and you can't easily play with the angles since you need to disassemble the whole thing every time you want to change the angle. The central bolt isn't just to adjust the angle as I first thought (there's no instruction manual provided). It hold to parts together that you have to split, with losening the two ther bolts. But once all this is done, you'll be happy with your new bike setup ! ;-) SO in the end, it's good and worth buying.

Adjustable Stem

PostedFebruary 21, 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
Cons: Heavy
Bought this for my second hand road bike. I realised that the existing stem was too long for me and the bars were set a bit too low.
This stem has given me the reduction in reach and the raise in height that my handlebars needed - so it's spot on if that's what you need.
It's a bit heavier than my standard stem rather obviously, but what's a few grams unless you are trying to win an Olympic medal!
