I'm thinking about getting a new Stem and wanted to know of anyone has opinions on the:

Demolition Brace Stem
http://demolitionparts.com/products/brace-stem/

Shadow Chula Stem
http://www.theshadowconspiracy.com/lahsaan-kobza-chula-stem/

I know the Demolition is new but if you have had a Demolition I the past I would be interested in knowing how they hold up.

Thanks

Both of them will hold up fine

I'd go with the chula though just because it looks alittle better

Thats a tough call. if i was in your boat id probably get the Demo stem. Both are good calls. i more of a fan of the Odyssey SXTN.

I personally like the chula more, looks more like my cult salvation, which is a clean looking stem.

Yeah I'm leaning towards the Shadow now. I have Shadow bars and Forks too so probably be all around cleaner with the Chula.

There is no better stem right now imo. Under 10 ounces, super strong, simple and easy to install 3 bolt design, no pinch bolts so the back side is knee friendly, and awesome looking.

I think the Chula always looks good when built up. It's one of those parts that looks better on a bike than it does on its own.

Chula has huge bolts and a wide clamping area to keep your bars in place (if you set it up right)

heat treated CNC

I'm gonna need bigger bars

You seem set on those two but i cant speak highly enough of the odyssey tomahawk.

The only other one I was considering was the Colony Squareback. I think the tomahawk is a front load and I can't ride a front load it feels to weird.
