There are gooseneck and “LD” stems, so why not go with a 0mm upright stem?

Pacenti Developed a 25mm MTB Stem using PDent™

Pacenti Developed a 25mm MTB Stem using PDent™

MTB stems keep getting shorter, but there’s a barrier to ultimate stubbiness. That threshold seems to be around 30mm. Maybe that’s short enough, but for not for Kirk Pacenti. In his quest to push new ideas, Kirk has developed a patent pending PDent™ system, allowing stems to go as short at 15mm, with initial test products coming in at 25mm. Now, 5mm isn’t anything to brag about, but this is an interesting concept and an even moreso, something worthy of discussion.

Rather than paraphrasing Pacenti’s PR, I’ve pasted it in below, along with a few product photos.

The Speedvagen Integrated Cross Stem Still Rules

The Speedvagen Integrated Cross Stem Still Rules

Ever since I first got to use one of Speedvagen’s Integrated Cross Stems, I was in love. After deciding to “archive” the CX Worlds Edition, I commissioned Speedvagen to make me an all-black version. As long as my cross bikes use cantilever brakes, one of these stems will be resting atop of the steerer… especially since they look so good in all-black!

It’s such a simple design, on a high-tech component. It greatly improves the usability of a cantilever cross bike, for a small upcharge to the retail price on a standard ENVE stem and right now, Speedvagen is offering free Shipping on all Speedvagen Integrated CX stems for 1-week.
