I got the houser +1. Both the stems you mentioned reposition the flag that the tie rods bolt to. They do that to reduce bump steer. As your front suspension goes threw it's motion the front wheels actually can toe in or out. Say your front shocks are compressed. That will cause your front wheels to toe out causing your bike to want to veer left or right. These stems are designed to help reduce that. Wich means less fatigue when your riding hard. Also both stems are considerably stronger than stock. Both have anti vibe clamps available for them. As far as I know the trail tech clamp won't work with out some modification?

Bump steer is where the front wheels change toe during the shock movement. The toe during shock movement tends to toe in and out during this process.It will toe in more, when say airborn and toe out when the shocks are fully compressed(bottomed out).

I have a Teixeira Tech antivibe stem and the shock and vibe clamps. This is an insane setup. I love it .

are there any other handle bar clamps that work besides the shock and vibe cause that is almost as much as the stem.
