Aiight, well its christmas, and im choosing what i want,
Looking at stems, I want something gold, 7075 and front load.
So far I've found the Colony Offical, and the Odyssey Elementary (i dont really like the look of the CFL, and its not really much of an upgrade IMO)
Ive heard the Elementary slips, and ive seen Colony Bolts snap.
Whats should i get?
And if you know of any more options, that'd be cool too.

Also bought a HD Video camera off my mate, so ill be making some edits too.
Any ideas on good free editing software?

Yeah i did have a look at the DLR
i wanted it, until i realised it was 6061 sad
There isn't much point going 6061 to 7075, especially when thats $100 bucks i could use elsewhere.

thanks for the gratz.
i got to 450 without even trying, and i would have kept going but i wasn't expecting it so i stopped looking around at 450. I reckong ill get the 5 if i look to it. :D

7075 is hard as shit. and lighter.
ive seen the difference with sprocky's and i'd go for a 7075 over anything else.

even though the fit is 6061, trust me its really good. i think it was getskyhigh who said he was running his for 4 years, ive been running mine for a year, no slips. that stem is the shit.

|

12/16/2010 2:30 AM

yeah getskyhigh has a DLR and has had it for 4 years and he shreds hard.

|

12/16/2010 3:03 AM

Aiight. I know shredders that run the colony one too. and the odyssey one.

Remember that 1080 kid jarrod? hes got the colony stem.

Yaaah so any stem should last you and me fine.
In the end it all comes down to what stem you like best and price.

Very few stems are made out of 7075 aluminum. Personally stems almost never snap (if you use them the right way, ex: Hardcore street on a racing stem is not the right way)

I would just get the fit, they're really nice.
