Michael Von Sothen, the man behind Von Sothen Racing is always working on some of the most creative BMX components in the industry. His latest work of art is this prototype stem that he posted on his Facebook and Instagram pages. The polished CNC machined stem is a top load design but with a twist. The steel M8 bolts screw in from the bottom giving this stem a super clean look. There are a lot of finer details in shaping of the design to shave off weight. There’s even a bottle opener looking design on the bottom of the stem….I wonder if that’s what it’s meant for? 😉
The stem weighs in at 11.4oz and Michael said he did a small run of these so you may be able to get your hands on one.

The The first prototype off of the machine. Yeah, it’s midnight on a Saturday, I’m aware I have no life.
