I really liked this stem.  I loved how it made my bars sit higher, however, with the cutouts it creaked.  I never could get used to that.  I just wasn't sure.

Some guys run the Kink relief, the Demo stems and all these cutout stems that creak like a pair of ungreased hollowbites.  That just isn't for me.  I like to use the sound as a sign of fatigue, knowing that something is about to break.  Parts shouldn't sound like that upon installation.

That being said, there is nothing wrong with it, it just made noise.

Deluxe is making a beefier version of the same stem.

Should be out in summer, maybe.

i've run the kink relief since they were first produced. it has never made a sound and has never moved once. i love it. it holds the bars in place even with the front bolts undone

The mechanic at my lbs used to ride the kink stem and it ruined his fork steerer tube.
