I don't miss the bad old days of cosmetics for cosmetic's sake, but in my own defense, this I-9 stem isn't just a looker. All rounded edges, the opposing bolts snug up beautifully (the stainless hardware is really nice) the bar interface and steerer interface as perfect and it's really stiff/solid for the weight.  Again, not claiming it's in any way ride changing over something you can buy for $50, but I think there's a lot to talk about there in terms of justifying why it costs what it costs. I mean, compared to carbon brake rotors it's the bargain of the century in terms of performance/$!!! HAHAHA.   Anyways, the whole point is sometimes you just want to buy something really nice - and it is really nice.
