difference in lefty stems ?
i just bought a 2009 rize three, the stem is chewed up and i would like to replace it, i believe my bike has the headshock mountain stem currently, can i replace it with the XC3 stem, which is cheaper, or do i have to stick with the headshock mountain stem. One more question, can i replace the entire set up with the XC3 integrated system.
It should have a Al bonded PBR lefty. So, the XC3 stem should work fine for you.
The newer, lighter, and pricer OPI stems are availible too. If you go this way, make sure you get the version 2 OPI stem. Also, they are a pain to install. Have that rubber mallet handy.
If I had to do it all over again, I'd probably go with the Xc3 stem set up.
I think the xc3 is only 25 gr heavier.
Lead by my Lefty............... right down the trail, no brakes.
Thanks for the response, I was hoping they were interchangeable, I've found some of the one piece units actually cheaper than the stem alone.
