    I need to buy a new shorter stem but the price range is from £20 to £120. What do you get for the eextra money? 1 to 2 oz lighter, nicer appearance. How good can a stem be assuming the cheaper ones aren't prone to catastrophic failure? Or should I do what I normally do when I'm puzzled and go for middle of the road?

    what length do you want?
    I've got a 105mm one you can have for a tenner.

    Itm make some very good cheap stems. ideally find a stem that you can try in the right length and then buy a more expensive one that looks nice ;)
