More from Grammo

As you can see in the above picture, there are two angle adjusments to this Grammo stem. The website gives the indication that the product is meant for bike fitting, probably not for long term use. I am assuming that the two angle adjustments, when fiddled with properly, allow the fitter to adjust both angle and height of the handlebars. Although it looks like a Ritchey adjustable stem, it's not quite the same. The Ritchey has splines that engage and prevent angular slippage, making adjustment rather time consuming and that stem more of a long term use item. The new Grammo stem seems to compete more with the long manufactured Look adjustable stem and is likely a temporary component.
