Titec has a great deal on ti stems ($45) and I was wondering if anyone has any experience with Ti road stems. I am looking at a 100mm length and weigh 140. Would this be too flexy? Its light and cool in a retro looking way. Thanks

I bought one of those $45 beauties for a TST Ti road bike. Took the logo off with acetone, and it looks slick. I am also 140lbs and I don't notice any flex. Mine is 11cm, if I recall correctly. I did have to turn down the Reynolds top cap to the diameter of the stem clamp so it wouldn't look cobbled together.
So how do you like your TST frame? nmNessism
