The one defining thing about Twenty6 products is “Design”. At a glance, you notice the details of what’s important. There’s no excess in materials used, and it’s there where you need it. The form factor is sleek and sexy and moto all wrapped into one. Overlay that with the floral pattern etching and you’ve got yourself a piece of art.
A stem is a stem is a stem. They all clamp bars and steer tubes well. Where this one differs from what everyone else is offering is the wedge style clamping system. This provides a smooth uninterrupted flow of material around the steer tube which gives it a elegant look but also reduces the chance of your pinch bolts catching onto any part of your body or clothes when you get your “whips” on. It’s a nice integration of a design you’ve seen on the old Thomson XC stem. It works.
WHERE TO GET EM:
Best price on them is at hucknroll.com.
GOOD: Bling Factor!!! Match these up with the Prerunner pedals and some Gascaps (bar ends). Show up at the local spot and get around the “No Dig, No Jump” policy.
BAD: Known for their light ass pedals, this would be a sick stem if it was 150g. Stack height could be shorter. Spendy pay to play factor.
