    New question here. What Stem Would You Guys Recommend...

    Hello!

    I need some help, I'm looking for a Strong & Long Rise Stem. I'm about 6'2" and under 260pound, I ride Fast Aggressive XC and some AM.

    I'm currently looking at Thomson Elite X4 , is it really the best stem to get..?

    Any other Strong Stem I should consider..?

    Thanks.

    My boy is like 6-4 and rides an older Bullit with the Thomson and rides pretty aggressive to say the least. No problems with the stem!

    You pretty much can't go wrong with anything from thompson.
    Look, whatever happens, don't fight the mountain.
