    2005 Raceface Deus XC stem??

    Hey,

    Does anybody know anything about this stem??

    http://www.raceface.com/components/s...eusxc-stem.htm

    Looks good, I read the instruction, and the boolts are just normal steel stem bolts(compared to how they mention all Alu hardware is used to keep the weight down).

    Weight weenies shows it at being very close to claimed weight.

    Thought?

    my thoughts are it could be even lighter if it didn't have that dumb logo thing in the middle of the faceplate

    time to break out the dremel i guess

    Deus

    I have not picked one up yet, but I am going to use it on my new bike build. I am currently using one of the previus Deus stems. The new stem is forged rather than cnc'd, but it does use the interlocking bar clamp. I have found this bar clamp to be a very good design, as it does not have any tendency to pinch carbon bars, and I feel that it must add some stiffness to the bar/stem interface. It is great that WWs has a confirmed weight of 135 gm for the 120mm '05 Deus. It will be perfect for my new bike.
