Stem Raiser To Raise The Handlebars

Has anyone used one of these and what experience have you had? I am thinking of using one to raise the front end on a mountain bike which is being converted to a hybrid. How does it effect the steering? Thank you very much for any replies in advance.

Re: Evans Cycles seeks buyer after failing to mount rescue bid
