    question for everyone (market research)

    What would you guys think about a Purple Anodized DH/Freeride/Urban 50mm stem? WIth 80s/early 90's stuff coming back on strong, I think this might be really sick. A friend who is a big wig at a prominant Stem and Bar company ( I can't say which one at this time for obvious reasons) has posed the question to me and I think it would be awesome. The design of the stem makes it look sick in purple. It will be a limited edition if it does happen. I just wanted to get opinions from a large group of bikers.

    Ummm....I'd say "no", but "hell no" seems so much more appropriate.

    sounds like a way of not moving inventory.

    i mean, we wouldnt want to go back to our hairstyles from the 80/90s now would we.

    the 80s has been peekin its ugly head, although in a slightly subliminal and nefarious manner (the kids will never catch on). I blame GTA Vice City and its soundtrack, especially the Flock of Seagulls tune...

    If it was under $25, I'd buy it...

    I don't give much of a crap about color. Price is what gets my attention. And there are precious short beefy stems sold for $25 or less.

    hjmmmm

    normally I'd chime in with a HELL NO, but similar styling has a place:

    aftermarket levers. people are running all sorts of different colored levers, from dangerboy to GRC to RR's (back when they were around... )

    azonic had some annodized handlebars that looked pretty sweet, and often went with a color scheme.

    BUT

    anybody remember about a year, year and a half ago when Titec was blowing out their collection of red and blue colored stems and handlebars? was practically free because of the hideous colors, they must've been losing money on everything they sold... I'd say unless you're willing to take a bit of a gamble on it, avoid it. If it's a limited production that you just want to have fun with, then by all means go for it.

    The whole 80's thing was very tacky the first time around, don't understand why it's coming back. No way on the purple ano stem. If the the design of the stem doesn't speak for it's self, then give it a stupid hair cut!

    Oh man!! No effing way!! I think you're right. Isn't them re-uniting the first sign of the apocolypse?
