Sweet! Would be nice to see a little longer reach option as well

In similar style you can get a S&M Enduro in 40mm.

Yep or the Liberte (from St Martin) which I happened to pick up already. Inexpensive too!

Come on, the Liberté one is nothing compared to a S&M or a Pegasus stem, which have a machining finish, not molded.
The Liberté one is purely a stem coming from the Taiwan Bicycle Source book, or the chinese one (if it exists),
there is the same stem model on some FEC complete for example
I do not say that's a bad product, but that way different than the two others!

I want to give Revig some credit here on this one because I recently got rid of my liberte stem. It wouldn’t hold a new set of Heresy bars in place and I lost all faith in it. After getting the S&M Enduro V2 (40mm) there is simply no comparison in terms of quality and finish—the S&M is well worth the money. Above all, after switching back to the Intrikat bars I have full faith in my bike again!!!

Metalbmxer, I assume you like the ~40mm reach on your stem? I have been using the same short stem (26.5mm I think, or maybe 28mm, not sure) for so many years I don't even know whether I'd like longer reach. But I'd like to try and see what works best, unfortunately all this testing/trying out parts requires $$$

I have settled on 40 as the perfect length. When I switched from my Sequence 0 offset bar stem combo, I first got the 36mm reach S&M Enduro 1. This was about 5 years ago. I've since tried 38, 39, 40 and 45 and found 40 to be perfect. I think if you were to try a 36mm stem it'd be a welcome yet not too drastic change.
