    Just found this while going through the classifieds on PB...

    http://www.pinkbike.com/buysell/940358/

    It's a similar to the 77 designs dm stem, but doesn't use the mounting bolts to clamp the bars. It's also similar to Thompson's dm stem, but with a clamp design instead. At $75 shipped, it's a pretty good deal IMO.
    Just wondering, has anyone tried it yet? I'm considering getting one, but can't find much info on the guy that makes it...

    I know the guy personally. He's a stand up dude who has been rocking one on his DH rig for a few years now and does solid work. Only reason I don't have one on my bike right now is that I haven't made it up to see him he started production.

    I like the stem clips, but this one seems like a bad idea.

    I had that idea ages ago. Then I realized how pointless it was and never did anything with it.

    could be a good solution if you buy a used fork and the steerer tube isn't long enough to run a traditional stem.

    You can usually get a new steerer tube pressed in for about that much.

    Not here in derpville. Though that gives me idea to order my steerer in the us since I'm worried my bar height may go a bit too low if I go angleset.

    Kudos should go to the kid i saw in the Whistler line up with a Marzocchi direct mount stem attached to the top of his 66. I nearly had a heart attack on his behalf.
