We pulled our annual April Fools Prank last week and this year it really had people going WTF?
If you missed it here it is in its’ entirety
Google “Straitline Quickie Stem” for all the postings worldwide but Fiber glass guy saw through the prank and described what we were going for with all of our April pranks!

Super hilarious! You guys have found the perfect way to reveal all of the know nothing,know it all,over thinkers!hahahaha Really,really funny guys!”
Psst… its a joke and the lamest invention ever- besides Segways. Actually I’d give a Segway a whirl, they just look dumb.
For the most part reading the comments was funny and everyone was stoked on the prank, some too stoked then they retracted the comments and hid in shame!

I'm sorry, but do we really NEED quick-release on STEMS?!?! I mean, It's a good idea, but we all know what's going to happen. You wake up one morning, not fully caffinated, and go to hitch up the bike to your car, using the quick release. Once you get to your favorite riding spot, you take the bike off, and set the stem straight again. HOWEVER you don't clamp it as tight as you should have. You blast down the rock garden, when suddenly, the stem becomes loose! You end up in a horrific crash and black out. In the hospital, you find that you have broken numerous bones, as well as your bike. You then regret the purchase of this item...
If this is an april fool joke, ignore everything above...
EDIT: WWWWOOOOOWWWW! you got me! April FOOLS”
For those of you just stoked on it all be careful… our Chain guide is soon to be released.
