Item # FSA000I
Description

Bantam-weight brawler.

FSA manufacturers carbon fiber stems, but arguably its very best stem (though not the most exotic or the most expensive) is the OS-99. The OS-99 is the lightest stem in the FSA family and — believe it or not — it's made from 7050 aluminum alloy.

Don't let the extreme lightness of the OS-99 give you concerns about durability. FSA manufactures it using a proprietary 3D forging technique that uses slow forging speeds and extremely high pressures to eliminate surface deformation. It carefully controls the heat treatment process to ensure ideal crystal growth. The heat treatment is so critical to the finished product, in fact, that FSA documents and inspects every heat treatment session to ensure quality. It might be exceptionally lightweight, but it has the toughness of a heavyweight.

The forged faceplate has a serrated grip area to securely fix both alloy and carbon fiber handlebars. All sharp edges are radiused to eliminate potential stress risers — even the washers and counterbores for the Ti bolts are radiused for better stress flow. And the clamping area is diagonally cut to better distribute the clamping load across the steerer tube.

The OS-99 is available in six lengths, from 80mm to 130mm. It has an 84 degree rise (+/- 6 degrees), with a clamp stack height of 41mm. The clamp diameter is 31.8mm.

    FSA OS-99 stem

    I purchased this stem a few months ago. I like the mat flat finish, however, when properly torqueing the pinch bolts, the ears of the stem are touching. This despite under torqueing to only 4nm not the 6 recommended that I have never torqued to. Before you tell me to look more closely I actually put a piece of paper between the ears and couldn't remove it after tightening the pinch bolt. Expensive and certainly not thoughtfully engineered.

    hello, do you have actual weight on the FSA OS-99 stem? And any other stem comparable to this one you'd recommend? thanks very much
