The Bilt stem is a simple and effective piece of equipment. The two pinch-bolt steerer fastening at the back does give the stem a somewhat bulky look, but this is compensated for by the sheer lack of complication in design.

With a zero degree rise and 50mm reach, the Busta creates a very predictable and controllable feel. It helps to focus weight to the appropriate places during cornering and gives the rider a greater amount to front wheel feedback. The Busta is forged from aluminium and uses a four-bolt front-loading clamp to secure the handlebar snugly and safely. Available only in black.
