    Stem Question

    Well since I am still new to this sport.. and am not yet familiar with all the components yet.. I was wondering if anyone could tell me what these numbers are on the side of my stock Giant stem?..Sorry for all the little bits of dirt I just had a dusty ride today and have not had time to wash.. Any answers would be awesome!! Thanks

    The 9-10 N.m is the torque value for the stem bolts
    31.8 is the Outside Diameter of the handlebars that fit the stem
    E:70 is the distance in millimeters from the centerline of the steerer tube to the centerline of the handlebars
    +-15* is the rise of the stem (stems can be flipped upside down to alter fitment)
    H1112D is likely the stem part number or something.

    Hope that helps

    Nothing left to be said.
    Use it, use it, use it while you still have it.

    yup.. 99% have it somewhere, though a lot stamp it inside or hidden under some lip.. only seems one generic no named one without it.

    Dirt?
    What dirt?

    A little dust here and there won't hurt the bike any, as long as you don't let it accumulate on the drivetrain, brakes and sliding suspension parts....
