Ave Stout Stem

With people running drop stems and 9" rise bars, it's become apparent that the bars do the talking nowadays; not the spacers under your stem. Ave's new Stout stem features a built-in 45 degree upper compression ring, which takes the place of the current compression ring as well as dust cap (and spacers if that's the way you roll.) This unique feature makes for a super-flush fit between the stem and the frame without lowering your bars any further than a traditional front load/drop stem. According to the manufacturer, the Ave stem is the "Newest innovation in BMX stems, period." Bold words for a bold idea. eyebmx.com
