Mite & stems

Comparing a homemade steel stem to a purchased aluminum stem. The steel stem weighs about the same by distance as the aluminum stem does, but the aluminum stem has the handlebar clamp perpendicular to the stem clamp whilst the steel one does not. Dust Mite makes a worse stem than either of them, of course, because it doesn’t do much in the whole clamping department.
