November 1, 2015
Model/Year: 2016 Trek X Caliber 9

Pros: Durable.
Does its job.

Cons: Finish does not last.

Recommendation: Came factory on my 2016 Trek X Caliber 9. I have had no problems other than the finish wears quickly.

Model/Year: 2015

Pros: Reasonable price. Not bad if you have to walk. Price is decent.

Cons: Do not stick well to studs on flat pedals.

Recommendation: These are my first mountainbike shoes. They have held up well. You can add a clip to them. If you ride flats with studs, go with a flatter sole.

Pros: Lightweight looks good aluminum won't rust

Cons: Thin coat of paint is prone to scratching

Model/Year: 90mm

Pros: Inexpensive
Not that heave

Cons: only two bolts to hold bars in place
a bit too much flex during rides.

Recommendation: I feel better with a 4 bolt clamp for the bars. And it is a bit to flexi for me.

Pros: stays in one piece?

Cons: Heavy
Bolts suck

Recommendation: This is the complete opposite of what you want out of a stem. When looking for stems, use this as what not to buy. I used to install these all day on trek bikes, and it never ceased to amaze me how cheap and crappy they are....

December 21, 2012
Pros: Soft foam
Looks cool
Light enough

Cons: Foam.....
Hurts the taint!!
Easily damaged

Recommendation: This saddle scratches easily and hurts the taint! Also, it is made out of a soft foam which is great for short distance comfort but you will pay for it one the longer rides. Since it has so much foam, if it gets wet, it will stay wet for the rest of the day.
