    Strengths:    Good looks, low stack height stiff

    Weaknesses:    sharp edges? but they work as can openers so no, no weakness'

    Bottom Line:

    Strengths:    Looks nice, lots of clamping surface, 4 bolt face plate

    Weaknesses:    Pretty heavy, the face plate is angled so that you can't run bars with a crossbar (I had steal crowbars)

    Bottom Line:   
    It is a stem. Come'on not too much to analize here. It looks good. They messed up my order (I ordered direct employee purchase and requested the ti color. I got black). Not a big deal, I just bolted it on and have been riding it since. The bar clamping surface is big. The bolts don't have to be very tigh before they clamp down on the bars.

    Thus far, no issues. I am running the 65 version.

    Nice cnc work for the money.

    Strengths:    So Stiff! Great looking. One of those product that really inspires confidence.

    Weaknesses:    NONE

    Bottom Line:   
    This thing rocks. I am not one to write reviews but I am amazed at this stems "burliness"! I had a 100mm Thompson on the bike first. Very light and a good stem but not made for my set up. I then put on an older Azonic and really liked the shorter stem and feel of the ride. After that I saw this one and figured I would give it a shot. It is heavy, about 5 or 6 ounces more than te Azonic but da-n it is tough. I am not sure if you can feel the lack of flex but I do not think this thing COULD flex.

    Add to all this it looks cool and no one else has one.

    Strengths:    good lenght and rise, stiff, 12.9 grade bolts, tight fit.

    Weaknesses:    Can't use spacers on the top of it. Has to be used with Atomic stem cap (sold with stem). Had to slightly modify the stem cap to make it fit and Azonic headlock.

    Bottom Line:   
    I needed a short stem with a little rise to it and the Atomic fits the bill perfectly. It also looks nice (black anodized, cnc machining). The bolts are 12.9 steel and won't sheer like the Azonic bolts do. People complain that they rust, but the rust is only superficial and occurs because they're steel. The only problem is that you can't fit spacers over the stem so you should be set on the steerer lenght you ned before cutting it to install the stem. Overall does what it supposed to do, with a bonus for good looksand reliability.
