Phew, almost didn't want to read this review in case the bar didn't live up to the hype, at least a little bit.

I tried a Redshift stem, initially I really liked it but gradually the appeal wore off, it almost began to feel like a bit of a liability on bigger whoops and bumps. Over small stuff it was fine though although even with heavier elastomers than recommended it still felt sort of 'flappy'. I do wonder if my position on the bike was too front heavy (saddle too far forward) but this didn't occur to me until after I had sold them stem. 

At least with the Smoothies I can have some vibration absorption AND save weight, win win!  cool
