I have 3 of these. I must really like them.

It's hard to get too excited about a stem, but this one has been fitting the bill for me for years now, and I should give it a nod. Very secure clamping, low weight for not too much money and it looks dynamite with the matching WCS bar. The bar is a great shape, very stiff, very light and not too expensive, also!

My go-to stem for all applications

I have this stem on 4 different bikes currently (2 road bikes, CX bike, tandem). It sports strength, reasonable weight, and good looks in a single, decently-priced package. I've used other stems in the past, but keep coming back to this one.

I have had one of these stems crack as the result of a crash, but I think any stem would have required replacement under the circumstances (a sudden over-the-bars crash rotated the bars forward roughly 30 degrees despite being clamped to spec - the bars were destroyed, my fork steering tube was cracked, and the stem had a hairline crack behind the top faceplate bolts). The fact that I replaced the damaged stem with another WCS 4-Axis speaks to the confidence I have in the quality of the part.

DO NOT BUY!

I have had two Ritchey stems crack on my road bike. A torque wrench was used to install them. Ritchey refused to honor their warranty, wouldn't even look at them. Crappy customer service, crappy product and no, Tom Ritchey has NOTHING to do with the company he founded.

Always liked Ritchey WCS 4-Axis road stems

I always liked the Ritchey WCS 4-Axis road stems. (Hate the new C260.) They're stiff, light and reliable. Bought the 17/73 degree stem because of neck issues. It's one of the only road stems with this geometry.

Light, stiff and looks good

I've been needing a new stem for awhile when I bought this one. I bought it mainly for it's weight vs. price and have been very happy. I think it's telling that I have noticed a difference in stiffness from my old one when I'm out of the saddle and climbing.

What a great stem

This is a great stem. The stem is light and stiff and easy to adjust and set up.

Also the stem in white looks awesome. This my second Ritchey WCS 4-Axis stem.
