A High Quality BMX Stem

Rating:
The Good:

I prefer front-load BMX stems, and this one is pretty nice. The Colony Official is fully machined, uses better metal, and has a good looking design. In my opinion. Mine have yet to slip or have any problems.

The Bad:

Kind of expensive for a single bike part.

Overall Review:

I gave the Colony Official Stem a 5 star rating. It Is one of my favorite bike parts that I own. Like it's design, function and looks.

Advice: To get a good clamp on your fork and bars, so that they don't slip. Clean all grease and dirt from both your handle bar and fork surfaces. Only grease the bolt threads. Use a long handle Allen wrench. So that you can get enough leverage to torque it down. Installed mine that way, and have yet to slip. I used Teflon grease

GET THIS STEM

Rating:
The Good:

The bolts they stay in shape well they don't strip and the bars and forks don't move at all. it grips tightly.

The Bad:

I ride brakes and i usually ride my stem upside down. the colony gyro plate doesn't work when the stem is upside down.

Overall Review:

I would consider every single part of this hub. it is amazing for a Stem and it is light as hell. it is strong. consider getting this
