"if your on tarmac or hard packed trails these are a must , cuts down rolling resistance and drag. apx 200 grams lighter per tyre and still grips in light mud with just a little shimee in puddles , nothing uncontrolable or to alarming . ahole lot less effort and sheds any mud to . my average speed has increased and less effort too . 400 grams lighter for £30 got to be a bargain ."

will these discs replace standard fitment

presently have 160mm avid cs2 disc fitted to rear , which i'm assuming has warped due to heat build up ( i tend to feather rear brake down long descent as front squeals like a piggie ) . carn't reset the disc pads after removing wheel to repair puncture , no problem with front resets easy . also will the right sized hs1 disc sholve the problem with the front ?(squeal)

 Ritchey Adjustable Stem 31.8mm Bars
Ritchey Adjustable Stem 31.8mm Bars
Dependable and reliable design by Tom Ritchey, this stem is designed to allow full adjustment and movement of over 45 degrees in either direction.
 

Why won't this work

I just got this and fitted it but it will not adjust
It's just fixed in the position It comes in.
I have undone the bolt plenty but it just stuck there.

you have to seperate the arm from the kuckle , theres splines inside to secure it more firmly . it adjust in an arch about 30 degrees up , so moves the bars upwards and backwards .fully remove pivit bolt and the two stem bolts and it splits into two parts.
