    Truvativ AKA Stem???

    Anybody know anything about these? I am looking into getting a new 90mm stem and I like the price of the AKA ($30 compared to the $90 Thompson). The lone review on MTBR for the AKA said it is pretty sketchy, but apparently they were revamped this year to save weight & increase stiffness--I dunno. I'd rather not sacrifice performance, so if the way to go is Thompson, so be it. I currently have a 50mm Thompson and it is great, just a tad too short. But if the AKA isn't bad, why not save $60?

    Not familiar with the AKA, thomson stems are nice, but ideally you follow recommended torque spec very closely...have seen several fractures around the bolts from over torques. Titec makes some stiff and indestructible stems for decent prices and weight. Been running a hellbent for several years now
