It has been raining off and on all day so I couldn't test ride it very far, but you absolutely can feel the flex. I'm not 200% sold on the look, they're really narrow, and I wish there was more neck to the stem. I'll try to get a real ride soon, and decide based on that.

It's crazy how well the elastomer color matches the fame color. They do look a little narrow. Now your ride is going to float like a butterfly and sting like a duck.

I know, I kept em nos for about a year, but the match was too perfect. Plus, what is the point of maintaining value on something that I would not sell? Nobody has ever seen anything like these before, I can't find a single shred of evidence online, so I'm putting them out there.

And yeah, the Duck is one bad bird

Are you talking about those flex stems you found earlier this year?

This one is different, bars/stem are one piece, can't switch them.
*I still want those stems though!

I never really explained how they work. The bars are actually two separate pieces. Each handle bolts to the block on the stem. They pivot on the bolt, compressing the elastomers, which act as suspension. There are bolts going in the side which basically hold everything in place on the axis of travel. The handles actually move up and down an inch or two in an arc.

Found em at Ron's, still had the old bike shop price tag on the stem. I think he bought that shop when it closed in the nineties. Never used on anything before I put them on Good From Afar for display in the garage. Sweet Marie wore em for a photo shoot last week but nobody even noticed. Too busy looking at her big tires
