stems are an install and forget part anyway.

Ah man I crashed at the park and my bars moved. Let me just get my 6mm, my 1/4" and my hammer. Nope.

I didn't make the cut for the first batch. Put my pre-order in for the next batch.

On a bolt related note, does anyone have a link where I can still get the 6mm broached Profile 5/16-18 bolts? Can't find them on their site or any of the mail orders.

Is this the bolt size that the newer Standard stems use?

Really like how the graphic looks on the black stem. I don't think I'd have the patience to deal with the process of putting that stem on though.

2017 time to re engineer the stem again.

I do like that there is no aluminum being stretched around the steerer each time you tighten/loosen your stem.. how often is that though? I mean stems do stretch, people have removed material because the back of their stem is touching.

Installation? Not a big deal.. as long as it holds the steerer good enough. Problem is if it moves you're stuck without a hammer?

"Hey you have a hammer?"



Actually those Animal multi tools had a hammer... or you only need a hammer to completely remove/install? 6mm bolts might be nice, or the option. S&M had the 6mm coarse thread bolts? During the redneck xlt release?

The Tree headset caps actually have both 1/4" & 6mm allen broaches as well.

Oh boohoo. You only need a hammer to set the bottom wedge when you install it. 

All the main components on my bike already use imperial fasteners anyway.

True to form, BG is bitching about the stem that we clamored for for years.

It looks like the hammer would only be needed for initial installation and not for small adjustments.

they only have the 1/4" allen broach available now. I talked to Profile shortly after posting that and they mentioned the batch of of 6mm broached bolts they made were over heated during the heat treatment. This made them brittle and they are no longer available. I did find my old Blue6 5/16-18 bolts so I will probably end up using those for the 6mm convenience.

Bummer! Anyone have a spare set of B6 bolts kicking about?

3 of the homies and I put preorders in at Empire for the next batch. I'm bummed about the imperial threads but I might just drill it out and run a metric helicoil kit through. Been waiting long enough and it looks so good that I have to get one anyways.

I agree 100%. As soon as I saw that it has imperial hardware, that was enough for me to not want it. And, I'm a proud T1 owner and booster. That said, I'm glad it finally got made and that everyone that owns one seems super stoked on it. It just isn't for me. I'm in the market for a new stem and I think the Relic Eon (rider owned company, USA made, metric hardware) is the way to go.
