    Idea! Intend Bicycle Components

    Let me introduce Grace XC, -7° & 80mm, final build.

    Nice CNC with sharp yet smooth edges (yep!). Some visible machine work traces, I suppose kept for the style benefits.. because overall attention to details let think they easily could have work the surface completely flat.

    from there, definitively more material compared to its Extralite competitor.
    this inside is rather.... empty.

    details from their "smarty wedge", nice

    handlebar side


    All screws are titanium,
    Each Intend product is send with something to keep mama quiet

    First test rides this Saturday/Sunday, as soon as I have a green light from Darimo for Intend's wide clamp.

    200km of rough Mtb so far, with this lovely Intend Grace XC.
    It is as announced : very stiff & ridiculously light. Better than my Ritchey C260, better than my Extralite and way lighter than my Syntace... What else ? maybe a steeper angulation ?
    It may be the perfect stem for me so far.

    Thx for the writeup and detailed weights & measures. Looks like there's also a black option, which makes sense for most bikes.

    Interesting packaging idea!

    I'm a fan, because of the test results at EFBE Prüftechnik GmbH. Good looking stuff, both from the engineering and the aesthetics perspective. Though, I will say that I prefer the shot peening (e.g. Syntace), over the machined look.
    We're all on the same ship, and it's sinking.

    Nice piece for sure.

    Not sure I'm ready to give up the Flatforce...but more I look at the Intend...
