I've been happy with it. I use it on a LS Ultimate with 1" Look HSC2 fork. Works fine and looks good flipped either way. I recently bought my wife a Ritchey WCS stem that has worked out nicely. Its a bit lighter and just as stiff.
Works great, looks fine(nm).dsc

Compared to some threadless stems on the market, the Forgie is a bit portly, but oh so stiff and in my eyes, aesthetically pleasing.

I've equipped three of my bikes with them and while I could have gone lighter, have no plans to replace them in the foreseeable future (I've even got a spare one on hand). And, I got a thumbs up from Reynolds for use of said on their CF steerered forks.

And you can find a semi endorsement in the Pro Euro peloton... with all the lightweight stems available, many a pro rider spec's his/her personal ride with a Forgie.

We abide.

Remain In Light.
