    SOOOOOO many stem choices !!

    It seems that there must be a good million stem offerings from various companys, and they are all so close in design. It is hard to narrow it down to just one. So, what direct mount stems are you guys running on your race bikes?

    Also, I just descovered the function bikes race crowns. Has any body had any experience with these. They look sick, and you dont half to bolt on a stem.

    Running a Twenty6... light and stiff... has also length adjustibility if you're not sure which length you want. Plus the anodised colours look sick!!!

    I actually run the Function Crowns. I love them. They look super clean and install very easily. I'd recommend them to anyone. With adjustable lengths for the stem, it's the perfect set-up.

    +2 for the Point1. Probably the lightest.
    Kowa have a nice new one, it's not as light as the Point1 but as light as the rest of the field. It has two length choices like most of the others, with different bolt hole options. I still think close to 50mm is where it's at though anyway.

    If you have a boxxer, there is a good round up of various direct mount options at sicklines. http://www.sicklines.com/2008/12/21/...t-mount-stems/
