    Syncros Stem Q'

    Almost every alloy Syncros stem I've seen has a weld "bump" like this in the same spot. Anyone know why? I assume it was where a rod was tacked to it for holding on and rotating during construction?

    That my friend is the infamous "Power Zit" Not sure on the functionality, but I always figured it was where the welding started & finished. I believe that "Power Zit" was the coined Syncros term.

    That's where the weld started and ended when they produced the stem. They built up the zit with extra filler rod to prevent it cracking thru there.

    Mebbe they stopped the weld and stuck the filler rod there. Snap it off, file it smooth. Kinda odd either way.
