    From what I've heard the e-13 is crazy light and performs well too. I looked at the dangerboy myself but it was a little heavy for me but all the dangerboy stuff I have used has been great.

    If it were me, E13. While DB makes great products, love my Saint levers, that stem is mucho $. I had a SIC and didn't particulalry like it all that much. Most of the others I just don;t like the looks of. If I can find something that looks good and functions just as well, I'm going for looks.

    ive been running the SIC as well,and it does what it is meant to do...i was looking at the e13 but i sort of question the stiffness?i mean lots of guys run them but just based on looks and common sense,something like that would be less stiff then something that is one piece.
    so this is how you add a signature!!

    E-13 Looks cool & light! No need for the other 'piles' of aluminum.

    Finally got a direct mount top crown for my old Boxxer so want to run a direct mount stem on it.

    Any other companies making direct mount stems for the Boxxer? (Truvativ since SRAM owns both companies?)

    Since I climb with the bike weight is a factor.

    Just to confirm, the Marzocchi stems use a different mounting pattern, correct?

    I use the Funn stem and have been running their bars for some time now. They're not the lightest nor fanciest but their stuff flat out works and won't break. I wouldn't use any other stem on my Boxxer unless Thomson comes out with one.

    Have FUN!
