    Anybody using one of these?

    Looks like it would make getting through tight trees easier.

    I couldn't figure it out, either. The link must be clicked. Basically, this stem makes it easier to store bikes in a small apartment or dorm. Clearly intended for city bikes/hybrids.

    They have some interesting products actually!

    This would be great for those that live in large metro areas but have walk ups or tiny apartments. The pop off pedals are really interesting. Like a removable steering wheel in race cars.

    The stem scares me only because the lever would be fairly easy to pop free in a bike rack then jump on bike and have less control. At least the stem has a radius where touches the upper stem so gravity would at least keep it aligned with the notch if it was loose, at least until you noticed it, or pulled up to get up a curb.

    Engineering meets necessity.

    It took me a sec until I realized that's a quick release lever on the side to allow the bars to rotate. Do they make one for 35mm bars?
    What, me worry?
