    New Budget stem - Kooka

    Not the dead Nevada based company, but apparently there is another Kooka brand making some light stems. Claimed 95g, the seller said it comes in at 105g on his scale. With some titanium bolts it would weigh a bit less, and the price is right: link . Does anyone know anything about this brand?

    I have seen those before. I wonder what a longer one weighs 90mm is short. I use a Pazzaz in 110mm and its about 135g with steel hardware. Price was $9.99. Here is a pic installed on my bike.

    Jenson has the Pazzaz in 120mm for $9. If thats your size you cant beat the price.

    That looks like the same stem as the Sette Edge. My 100 mm X 10 degree Edge is also an actual 135 grams with steel bolts. The Sette is considerably more expensive @ $25 though. 8^)

    Probably all made by Amoeba and neveda-kooka failed a LONG time ago. Second kooka was BC, Canada owned-operated. Don't know who this one is but not unusual to me that it might be british based as that's where the Onza name ended up. Definitely NOT worth the price tags though.
