Anvl Swage 35mm Stem
The Swage stem is an aggressive all-mountain stem that is designed to be lightweight, extremely strong, and flow perfectly with the lines of today's modern mountain bike. Every chamfer and cutout not only creates a beautiful stem but also cuts out any unnecessary weight to make it race-ready. Available in three sizes to create that perfect cockpit feel, the Swage features a 35mm bar bore that is extremely torsionally stiff.

The ANVL stem looks great and is built well. Thunder Mountain had one in stock and there service was great. Web site was easy to navigate and the order was processed and shipped fast.
I love the stem, it’s very well built. A real work of art, however it has a window that faces the rear of the bike that exposes the fork steerer tube and if your fork tube is like mine, it’s a bit scuffed from the twisting/ turning required to remove reinstall the stem during maintenance and once the stem is installed any scuffed or scrapes on the tube will be visible. Other than that, I chose the 32mm to reduce the reach, which on my frame, it’s got a long reach and the short stem helps to line up the bars almost directly over the steerer head tube making turning more precise. Also mounted the Evil Boomstick Carbon bars, adding a couple clear mylar stickers left over from my ride wrap kit, to protect and highlight the very stealthy Evil logos.
