The way commuters carry their bikes does matter a lot. There are two ways for pulling off the bike: one is holding on the handlebar, and the other is grabbing the stems. Both the two postures, however, do not consider the factors of hands' ability and ergonomics.
Therefore, Holding Stem is designed for the situation of pulling, steering the bikes, and hanging stuff as well. The angle of the stem has been proven to be the best for pulling. In addition, it provides a better sensation in terms of the shape fitted with hands. Handlebar Stem, meanwhile, offers an innovative place for hanging the stuff that street commuters carry with.
