2012 answer products xc mountain bike stem

Shown here in a really long 120mm size, Answer’s new forged alloy XC stem. It’ll be available June 1 in black and white for $85 and come in 70, 90, 100, 110 and 120 lengths. For some reason, my photo of it on a scale disappeared, so not sure of the weight, but it felt in line with other brands’ alloy offerings. More pics of this, plus Sun-Ringle’s new Punch dirt jump wheels with graphics to match their Circus DJ fork after the break…
