Date Reviewed: May 10, 2003

Strengths:    Does its job and looks sharp doing it.

Weaknesses:    Gives me no reason to get a Thompson, argghhh!

Bottom Line:   
Who cares what this thing weighs. Beefy welds give me peace of mind. I especially like the open section on the a$$ end of the stem where it clamps the steerer tube.

Strengths:    stiff like my dick, light like my nuts (as I am impotent from biking)

Weaknesses:    Zero
well, the graphics wear off a little


Bottom Line:   
Nice stuff. Its hard to imagine a nicer stem outside the foolish realm of titanium parts (me and my aluminum parts will take it to you anyday, chumps). Anyway, the graphics have worn off the sides a little, but I do crash alot for a good racer. Other than that, its a darn good part.

Fractured Eye Orbit - Blowout fracture!

Was riding a skinny... that, obviously, I should not have been... and went down, hitting my face on a rock. Oddly enough, the rock was covered with about 1/2" of moss so it sort of softened the initial blow. I can only image what getting hit by a professional boxer feels like, but I imagine that the ...
