Fiend Garrett Reynolds Stem
Keeping with the theme of the rest of the Fiend products, head honcho Garrett Reynolds has a signature stem out through the company that is a no bullshit approach to its design. Made out of 6061 aluminum, Garrett’s stem has a 48mm reach and 32mm stack height–the design is a bit of a drop style and I would imagine makes the stack height a bit higher if ran upside down.
Fit’s Benny L Stem
Across the pond, Benny Lewis is running his very own signature stem, the Benny L from Fit. This stem has a 46mm reach and 5mm rise when run normally and a 26.5mm rise when run inverted. Also worth noting are the philosophies behind using the drop stem design. According to Fit’s Ben Ward, “Most 8 inch bars are narrow; this design allows Benny to run bigger bars without them being too tall.” He also noted that Benny L is a big fan of the look as well.
