My buddy Daniel Galusha... yeah, the guy from Vegas who always reps S&M and Onyx on Facebook... got hooked up with one of these stems, so he asked me to do a quick write-up on it.  When Daniel first showed me photos of his V-Block stem on 8/7/2017, Trek's original 1-1/8" threadless clamp-on BMX stem (the shape of its base) and Answer's Rocker seat post (its top cap) instantly came to mind.  After these mid-school gems, the angles and anodized color (red) reminded me of ATOM Bikes' triple clamp fork.  In recent memory though, I've never seen ANYTHING like FRR's V-block stem - very unique and distinctive design.

The Fall Risk Racing V-Block stem is unarguably a head-turner.  Its angles are unlike any other stem that I've seen and it's been trimmed out while maintaining a really cool shape.

I'm not sure when the V-Blocks will be going into full production (it appears that only a few prototypes have been made for testing purposes at this time), but if you get one for your race bike, they'll definitely make you stand out!  If you want something a bit different, give AZ Bicycle Werx a call (1-602-466-3477) and find out when they'll be available.
