|They have a removeable faceplate and seem pretty adjustable (especially the Cobra one they just released):
Not sure how much the Cobra is, but the QuickComfort stem is a pretty reasonable $38 from Sheldon Brown's site...

|Guess adjustable stems aren't worth it and it's better to switch stems as needed :-P|

|My suggestion is to see if you can find a used one on ebay or something like that. Put it on your bike and ride it until you are sure you have your position dialed in, then find a stem that exactly matches that position. The Zoom stem is a nice tool to help you find the right position, but I wouldn't ride one permanently. It is nice in the fact that you can use one stem to find your position before you do something like drop $125 on some nice ultralight stem like a Deda Newtown. It also keeps you from having to buy 5 stems to find the one that works.
That stem is a tool, use it as such and be happy.

|Havn't used one of Zoom's, but I have an ITM Millenium adjustable. Makes it easy to try a lot of positions, will probably buy a fixed stem when I decide. It is very stiff, 1-1/8th inch, Easton EC90 carbon bar, Ouzo Pro fork. Was about $100 with shipping I think, occasionally see one on EBay for half that or so.|| |
