    Hi all,

    I am just finishing the cockpit upgrading of my new TREK COBIA 2012.

    I have got Easton EA70 low rise monkey bar. and looking for a better stem. The shortlisted stem are following.

    RACEFACE DEUS 6 degrees 90mm
    RACEFACE Turbine 6 degress 90mm
    Easton EA90 10 degrees 90mm

    What would be the better match?

    Thanks in advance

    +1 for Turbine. 7000's aluminum, light, and damn good looking.

    I'm really good looking.

    It's a stem. It's not going to make you any faster. It might shed a whopping 30 grams off your bike, making your Cobia a 28 pound bike instead of a 28.05 pound bike.

    That said, I have a Race Face Dues on two of my bikes. I chose it because it is a shiny polished silver finish, and it was reasonably light and cheap with a low stack height.

    I also have a couple of FSA OS140 stems. Also decent.

    Honestly, I can't tell the difference.

    Upgrade for what? I spent days trying to figure out what stem to get to shorten my cockpit and in the end had only 2 choices considering the weight, angle and length I wanted to try. Consider bling next..........which I vote Turbine.
