    Torque recommendations

    I have looked all over the web for torque specs for this stem with no luck. Does anyone know how tight these should be? Thanks!

    Assuming both the bar and the fork are alloy, use 6-6.5nm for the 5mm and 8nm for the 6mm.

    I had a Forgie on a 1in alloy steerer. What makes your stem a Forgie XL?

    This sounds about right. But more important is to take care to tighten the stem to bar screws gradually and evenly going back and forth often.
