    Kore, Nukeproof, Ragley and Truvativ all do some nice stems under £50, get online and pick whichever you like the looks of.

    Anyway, my bike had it's third birthday a few weeks ago, which I felt deserved a then and now.
    Then (May 2011)

    Now (Jul 2014)

    Yup, still my bike, even put a new dent in it (and myself )this afternoon.

    My New Hardtail LOVE LOVE

    My new hard tail!
    Cogburn CB4
    Makes a big difference in uphill climbs!
    The only complaint I have is that the pedals are
    grabbing stuff like rocks and my BMC i set up higher.
    Can I fix this?

    You could use no crank at all.
    Can't a guy get bombed and call his ex at 3 in the morning without it meaning something?!

    I am not too savvy with parts yet. I am going very fast over rough terrain with three dogs pulling me. I have to think fast in order to dodge those rocks.

    I bought a real Klein Attitude Comp back in 97 and fell in love. Unfortunately, she broke my heart after I broke her chain stay. I got a new "Klein", but by then Klein Bikes of Chehalis, WA was no more. The only original component is the frame, everything else has been replaced/upgraded (a few times). Not a wall hanger and not worth taking a picture of, but that $1,100 bike saved me $11,000,000 in psycho-therapy.

    In all seriousness, try to think faster and anticipate more. Moving your pedals around based on a turn or obstacle is a skill we're all practicing. I crashed hard the other day while ignoring that skill... :-)
    Also, I can't imagine trying to ride with dogs pulling youSQUIRREL!!!!!!!

    Sacto, do you drop the chain much without a guide? I wanna ditch mine because I'm tired of listening to the chain rubbing but I'm worried.

    Zero chain drops so far. I don't ride particularly rocky trails...but there are sections that are rough. I have a similar setup on my Remedy and no dropped chains as well. I'm a believer in this setup! The narrow/wide front ring is a big drivetrain improvement for people wanting or thinking to go 1x. It works with the clutched rear derailleur!

    It's not much of an issue on hardtails because the chainstay length/chain tension isn't constantly changing like on a FS bike.

    If your chain line is good it'll probably be fine, or just run an upper guide.
