- Stem to match Renthal Fatbar Lite Carbon
Just fitted a set of Renthal Fatbar Lite Carbons to my bike, along with a Thomson stem. Trouble is, it all looks a bit crap.
So, if you’ve got a set of the above handlebars, with a nice looking 70mm stem, can you post a photo? I know it’s tarty, but that’s how I like my bikes!Posted 4 years agomatlockmeatMember
I’ve been waiting ages for the 70mm renthal stem.
I’ve tried contacting renthal to ask when it’s out but they never reply.
I’d seriously look for another stem as you could be waiting forever for renthal to bring out a 70mm version.
In the end I went for a Easton Havoc in 65mm length.Posted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
Thing is they’ve covered them in garish logos, including a centre graphic which looks pretty ugly under most stems- it’s like it was designed to look good on a shelf not on a bike. So I think pretty much anything is going to look a bit silly. But a solid front faceplate at least will cover up most of the middle graphic.
I’d go with a Gusset Staff, well priced, decent weight, good looking, and doesn’t do anything untoward. You can spend 3 times as much for a fancier stem but you’ll not know any difference when riding.Posted 4 years ago
