    Mountain bike (MTB) stems

    Mountain bike stems are generally a lot shorter and flatter than stems you find on other types of bicycle. Stems vary in a few factors but the two critical ones are length and rise. Stem length is crucial on a mountain bike. Too long and you'' find descending gets scary. Too short and your ride position can feel cramped, if your top tube is also short anyway. For modern mountain bikes a stem length of between 50 and 80mm is standard. Rise angles don't vary hugely. The vast majority of stems are made from aluminium although there are some high end carbon fibre stems appearing now. We stock stems from Easton, Hope, race Face, Thomson and Truvativ.
