The ZIPP Service Course line of parts are a killer value. The offset seatpost is super comfortable and this stem is great in both fit and finish. It comes with Torx 25 bolts and a tool to install the stem. Very nice. I bought the black version. I've owned 3 Service Course stems over the years; 2 +/- 25* stems for a different bike where i needed to raise the bars and they worked out great. This current stem in 70mm +- 6* is on my Ritchey Ascent frameset built up as an Adventure bike. It's paired with the Service Course offset seatpost because of Velominati Rule #8. ;)
Would buy again and would recommend.
Installation was fast and simple ... make of high quality materials and the fit was perfect. Don't overthink it. Buy it, Install it. Ride with confidence in you new stem !!!
Product is as described. Note, requires star tool to tighten screws.
was thrilled to find a short low rise stem by a decent manufacturer. Stem is great and made the fit adjustment I was after. Note to others, that the silver versions are painted silver not anodized or clear-coated. It's painted well, but doesn't necessarily match other silver metal parts.
I needed a shorter stem for a Ritchey Breakaway. This was a great deal, solid stem and matches the existing stem on my Pinarello Dogma F10. No complaints. I did swap out the star screws for traditional hex screws from a larger stem just so I wouldn't have to worry about having the right tool on the road. The stem CAME WITH A TOOL -- a small little hex-key-like star key. Highly recommend, the rise makes for super short stem length.
Some reviewers have mentioned not having the hex nut and carrying an extra tool, i prefer the T25 torx; if you have to adjust your stem on a ride, you weren't set up properly when you left. Stiffness is good, silver color is great.
Got this stem along with the matching handlebar for a new build. The stem is solid, no real flex from what I can tell when sprinting. It has a textured sparkle finish, and the non-drive side logo will always be upside down.
Always have trusted ZIPP products, quality is always on par from low tier up to top of the line products.always trusted!!
I needed a short extension that was stiff and this did the trick. The clamp felt a bit too tight for the handlebars though even though I have Zipp handlebars.
Not much to this review other than the stem is exactly as described and shown in the listing. Zipp makes a quality product and the silver looks good in a world that loves black cockpits.
