Seems like a waste to pull a good rigid stem friend though, should be on a rack in the desert, doing what it was meant to do. Remember, rigid stem friends=strong, cheap, light.
Yeah, I know, but:
A. I aint all that fond of them any smaller than 2.5, that big stem gets in the way everywhere but the desert
B. I got another #2 in much better condition, that one the trigger action wasn't as smooth due to slight rust on the axle
Another note I think this is what one would call the 4th generation ridged friend, possible 3rd (I don't know whether the black anodized stem models or the ones with all sizes red anodizing came first, tjis one is the latter). If I am correct there were five different models with the first two being like Aric's stem (just machined) and the last three having a slightly forged stem hence the name change from friends to forged friends...
Correct me if anybody knows for sure on the generations...
