    crankbrothers cobalt stem reversible?
    I want to put a crankbrothers cockpit on my Niner EMD.
    I have a flatbar already but now i'm searching for a stem 90mm.

    I saw on their website that a stem is 6 uprise but can i mount it reverse?
    I prefer to have a downrise between 6 and 10 degrees.

    I see absolutely no reason not to flip it. It's not very high tech. It's just a stem. I've got a generic stem I've been using for years flipped. If you have any reservations contact Crank Bros. to confirm.

    Crank Brothers only shows it as a 6 degree stem. Usually the list a positive and negative symbol when it can be flipped.

    It's just a stem. There isn't much rocket science involved.

    Thomson used to etch their logo on the stem right way up for a positive rise. After countless queries as to whether it can be used reversed and people not being happy with the inverted logo, they now have the logo reversible.
