    Syncros controls for a clyde?

    Anybody out there have any recent experience on Syncros' controls?

    Specifically, I'm looking for feedback from anybody running their more recent (2010) product line. I'm building up a 2x9 Niner EMD hardtail, and quite frankly, love the look of the grunge black and grunge white finishes.

    I've searched and, other than their rims, not found much in the way of recent internet traffic on their offerings. If anyone out there is running their AM or FR stems or seatposts, please let me know what you think of them, postitives and/or negatives.

    Thanks in advance,

    Syncros is owned by Ritchey now days and is their heavier duty (ie AM, FR, and DH) line, though they do have their FL line as well.

    It seems like the AM stuff would be more than sufficient for a Clyde

    Thanks, I know who makes them and their intended use. I was hoping someone might have some first-hand knowledge regarding quality, durability, finish--that sort of thing. I did some more research and it doesn't look like they're marketed very well in the US, even though the stuff is available. Maybe I'll try hitting up some UK riders for opinions.
