|Is this a good quilled stem?|

|i have one in size 130mm. It's a little flexy but not overly as some say. Perhaps they come from bikes with stiffer stems. The best feature is the open-face plate. No need to take off the bar tape and shifters to change the bars!
Cinelli has one now too. I think it's called the frog and is also 26mm clamp size. If I had my wish, i would change my whole bar-stem setup by getting a quill-to-threadless adapter.
Can't go wrong with the murex, except that it's a bit flexy and isn't cheap. I hope this helps!

|If you want a removable face stem then you should also look at the Salsa S.U.L. Road. I'd guess it might be stiffer than the Murex too.
I'll be getting two of these soon. My wife and I have seven bikes and we share a particular road bike we really like. I'd like a longer stem and two of these will make sharing the bike very easy.

|I like mine - it's a little flexy rotationally, but not too bad - I like the removeable faceplace, and the overall looks of the stem.|| |
