About this deal

Between the stem faceplate and steerer tube, the stem is made up of a length of aluminium or carbon fibre, though titanium is occasionally used. Syncros’s Hixon all-in-one carbon bar and stem looks amazing in a sci-fi way and feels great on the trail but bar fit and accessory mounting are very restrictive and conventional bar and stem combos are lighter and cheaper.

Stem length is one of a number of factors, along with head tube angle and fork rake, that affects a bike’s handling. Race Face Turbine R 35 1. Race Face Turbine R 35 Stylish stem available in loads of colours and lengthsThere are normally a number of spacers on top of the headset. You can raise and lower the stem, and with it adjust the height of your handlebar, by moving spacers above or beneath the stem. Most stems tend to come between 30 and 50mm these days. Shorter stems aren't technically "better", they will give your bike sharper and faster reacting handling. How we test First instinct is as YW says above - the frame is too big. Putting the saddle so far forward will affect your pedaling too - part of the bike fit should have included fore/aft saddle position.

We don’t ‘choose‘ stem length — we get whichever stem length puts us in the correct riding position. Speaking of spacers, there should always be a spacer on top of the stem if you have a carbon fibre fork, and the steerer should extend into the spacer. That way the full length of the stem clamp engages with the steerer, reducing the chance of damage to the top of it. Reasons to buy: Super solid and resilient, flex free, and now comes in some great colours. Great valueIt’s expensive and needs careful setup but the Apex 35 is top-quality, will easily see years of service, and is a great stem for trail, enduro, and even XC use.
