|Has anyone tried these, I have a kineses carbon threaded fork and I want a new stem, I have an old Syn ros that is ugly and missing lables, scratched and non removable faceplate with a negative angle. My question exactly is if this is a valid solution? Weight gain? Will it stay tight?
thanks danuk, please email directly firstname.lastname@example.org I will check back hear too.

|I have used these adapters with good success. There will be a very slight weight gain, generally just the weight of the adapter. What you really gain is a huge choice of threadless stems to really suit you. It will stay as tight as any stem, provided you tighten it correctly and check it periodically. I don't see any downsides.|

|on a better quality conventional stem? You won't save weight with this setup, and you can still get really nice conventional stems.|| |
