Bike Build Process
All bikes are built, tested, tuned, and ready to ride upon shipment. The bike build process typically takes 2-3 days to complete depending on the bike model and the complexity of the build.
Orders for in-stock items placed by 3PM PST usually ship on the same day. Orders that include special-order or backordered items may be subject to shipping delays depending on product availability. Refer to estimated delivery times in cart when selecting shipping options.
Specifically designed for downhill and freeride mountain bikes with dual crown forks, direct mount bike stems offer an extreme level of strength and stiffness that simply cannot be achieved with a standard bicycle stem. This, in turn, has a tremendous effect on both durability and steering, providing more high-speed precision and control when it matters most.
As the name implies, direct mount bike stems bolt directly to the upper fork crown, mimicking a design that originated in the motorbike world. But like with standard bicycle stems, clamp diameter and stem length are the primary considerations when shopping for DM stems.
Clamp diameter is typically 31.8mm or 35mm, with the larger size being a touch stiffer but also slightly heavier. The other obvious caveat is that whichever diameter you choose it must be matched by the diameter of your chosen handlebars.
Direct mount bike stem length usually falls in the 40-50mm range, though there are also longer and shorter options available. And just as with standard stems, length will play a role in overall bike handling and your fit on the bike. Most DH bikes will use a shorter DH stem.
JensonUSA carries some of the best direct mount stems from companies like Chromag, Deity, Thomson, Renthal, Race Face, and Spank.
