Got my first of two of these stems from Chainlove and the only regret I have is that I didn't pick up two at the time. The one from Chainlove was 50mm and I had to settle for a 65mm from Hucknroll. Still completely satisfied with both stems and they're well worth the money. So far strong, precise, and trouble free.
I've heard that people have had trouble with the bolts slipping, but I used a torque wrench to make sure the values were correct and have yet to have a problem.
Bottom line: Awesome stem for an awesome price. Grab one while you can!
At first I had to get used to the fit of the helmet. I'm used to more 'xc' style helmets and this definitely fits more like a skate helmet. I actually thought I had bought the wrong size but after trying it on again and again I realized that it was just supposed to fit this way.
It provides excellent protection to much more of the head than my other helmets do, and because there are no adjustments, it gives a much more snug and secure fit. When it's on, it's on.
The only small gripes I would have are that it is a bit warmer than my other helmet (but I sweat like a faucet regardless so either way I'm going to have a hot head), and that the visor is not as functional as I'm used to. I like the fact that it's rather flimsy as I'm certain it won't get in the way during a crash, but I only wish it was a bit lower or longer so as to block a bit more of the sun.
Bottom line: I'm happy and would buy it again if I had the choice.
