There are a surprising amount of options when it comes to bike stems, both in terms of the designs on offer and the manufacturers you can choose. We stock direct mount and quill bike stems, with both threadless and threaded designs. The former offers lower weight at the cost of less adaptability, while the latter is heftier yet more adjustable.
Look, M Part and Zipp are just some of the brands of bike stem that we stock, and you can also sort through our stems according to size and colour. Your choice of stem will depend on the kind of steering experience you want; shorter equals improved responsiveness, yet means your aerodynamics will be slightly compromised. Another factor to consider is the material; carbon stems are light and strong yet sport a higher price than their steel or alloy counterparts.
Investing in a bike stem upgrade is a good step if you are looking to change the way your bike handles and perhaps shave off a few grams, which will make all the difference over the course of a long ride. To get more information about bike stems, talk to our team and let our expert advice guide you.
