The ControlTech Ti Mania stem claims to be the world's first monocoque constructed titanium stem, and it's a performance component that's well worth considering if you're looking for the finishing touch to your Ti pride and joy.
Control Tech are well known for alloy and carbon fibre components mostly stems and seatposts, though the Ti Mania range heralds a new move into the magic metal. I've been using this 90mm (lengths from 90-120mm in 10mm increments), 123g Ti Mania stem for about a year and it's proven itself in battle.

The Charge Skewer is a super long-distance companion for all you stylish mile eaters out there. In a week in which we've already tested Fixie Inc's Betty Leeds here's another bike that at first sight looks like an exercise in retro-styling but in reality aspires to delivering contemporary levels of performance. The two bikes couldn't be more different in materials and approach but both are competing for the same rider.
