    The best stem is the one that fits your unique body geometry.

    I meant which brands and models. The size and not the brand/model will be determined by your body geometry and needs for the ride

    I ride a Ritchey WCS CARBON MATRIX 4-AXIS and I stuffed the interior with cork to cut down on high frequency vibrations. I ride a longer stem than most to accommodate my long arms.

    Whatever the bike shop has in the length I want and a tasteful color that blends with the bike (ya I know-fashiontastic). It's not something I obsess about, it's a frikkin' stem. I put it on, forget about it and go frikkin' ride.

    I have one of these and it's a beautiful piece. The only weird part is the 3mm hardware. I know it saves weight but I'm usually wielding my 4/5/6mm park wrench and it sends me back to the toolbox every time.

    Stems are stems. You got your length, your rise . . . what else? Unless there is a documented history of breakage, you'll get a few anecdotal failures and then a bunch of Ra Ra Ra!

    Went with the renthal duo couldn't be happier. 50mm 10 rise. They have been making dirtbike stems forever so I'm sure they know what they are doing and it looks amazing.

    I've always used Thomsons for both my bikes stems and seatposts. Never had a failure.

    I'm not as think as you drunk I am

    I like my 50 mm answer stem. It looks good, it's light and it has a fairly large clamping surface.

    There are a lot of good stems out there and I compare by length, weight, reputation, and price. A good AM stem is short, light, strong, and on SALE.
    I got some bad ideas in my head.
