Swept back handlebars works poorly with the EESilk+ stem. I am using the Alee Denham Koga handlebar with this stem. Similar to Moloko and Jones handlebars When the hands are on the handgrips, the stem barely moves, when the hands are on the bullhorns then yes it works fine. The stem will behave differently depending on the distance of the hands in relation to the center point of rotation of the stem The rating is for sweptback handlebars

Really nice compliance and I love the adjustability. Turned my gravel bike into a bike that far more capable on really rough roads or even lighter MTB trails. Read my Strava summary for my thoughts.

  1. I bought a 80 with compliance switch for my wife, she loves the soft ride feel over rough roads. After hearing her positive comments and seeing first-had how well the stem is works (it’s very high-quality), I bought one for myself. It’s a little overkill for smooth paved road use, but on dirt roads and washboard, this stem works quite well…okay, washboard still sucks, but it’s not as bad. Note, the compliance switch is not a full lock-out, it simply provides two levels of stiffness. To be honest, I just leave mine in its stiffest mode, so I would’ve been happy with the simple non-switchable version. It’s not for everybody, nor is it ideal for every road condition, but front suspension is always a good thing on rough terrain. In short, it takes a little bit to get used to if your coming from the stiff-loving roadie circuit, it’s overkill on smooth roads, it’s great for most gravel situations, and not for hard-core single-track (but to be fair, it wasn’t designed for that). Remember, it’s not going to compete with a suspension fork, but I recommend if you’re looking to increase comfort.

  4. Does a great job of taming frost heaves on Green Bay concrete roads and as a bonus provides some basic gravel capabilities to my sportive and 55 year old hands.

It looks like the eeSilk stem is angled about minus 6 degrees from level. Is the stem flippable? Do you have any stems with a positive angle? Craig McGowan asked on December 16, 2023

You are correct, the eeSilk stems feature a -6deg angle. This still amounts to a small amount of positive rise on most bikes, but by no means is it a high-rise solution. Right now, we do not offer any stems with significant, positive rise but your feedback has been noted! We're always on the lookout for waht riders are asking for.

I wish there was a way to make it less spongy. It does take the shock from the bumps. I getting ready to climb green river cove 17 switch backs I'm debating taking it off.

My fault really, but I bought to apply to a Giant TCX, and I didn’t do my homework. They have a 1 1/2” stem. I’m saving until I buy another fork use on another build.Hope everyone is doing well over there! Cheers!
