Really does look weird. It looks "too much", but that's just me sticking to the tried and true...

Old 8 inch bars are going to come back on the market...

Damn. $65 for a stem... that's too much... my $25 Fit Hi Top does just as well for a fraction of the price lol

I mean if you spend that much on a stem that's cool, I'm just not willing to spend that much on a stem..

I don't crash, I do random gravity checks...

I always forget that bike parts cost so little in the US, at least im not im Canada though, they pay soo much more.

It looks like a regular topload stem to me. I don't see anything "uncomfortable". Lol before I clicked the link I was imagining spikes and sharp corners for some reason.

It's ridiculous. I get a bit of exchange rate changes but there's usually at least 100 to 200 dollars more for big items like completes and frames. Smaller items can be almost twice the US price. Makes BMX inaccessible to a lot of people.

That stem is silly. I saw it on a bike on instagram and it looks ridiculous.

Why is everyone sharing the Animal stem and making a huge deal about it?

The Odyssey is pretty crazy at 45mm.

The Animal is pretty basic at 35mm. 35mm rise stems have been being made & sold all over for 5+ years now.

I got my TDFL stem from Odyssey's sale section for $22. Unless you're riding and legitimately have thought "I need a taller stem" I think this is a good way to just get people to buy something new and try it.

Thinking about waking up without my penis makes me uncomfortable.

I use to be all about having a tall ass stem but now i run an animal inverse flipped so its basically a front load and ive never felt more in control of my bike.
