Strengths:    Price! Good strong stem at a great price.

Weaknesses:    ?

Bottom Line:   
Only ridden with it a few times - but it holds the handlebars and has way better geometry than my retarded stock stem from the M50 did.

Strengths:    Very nice looking, unique diamond/oval shape, near perfect welds, nice-n-light, and I got it for a song.

Weaknesses:    Absolutely none!

Bottom Line:   
I got the O.R.S. stem from PricePoint for an absolute steal on clearance at $9.95 (we're talking like 80% off!!!) and it's MUCH nicer than the price would lead you to believe. It's a very nice looking piece of kit and so far has proven to be stiff as anyone could hope and built to last. The two-bolt design is a very nice upgrade from the single-bolt design of the stock Icon stem that came on my Trek. The ovoid/diamond'esque shape is also rather unique looking as well and I believe plays a big role in the overall stiffness of the unit. Overall I'm absolutely satisfied with the O.R.S. stem and every other piece of Azonic equipment I've ever used.

Strengths:    Strong, stiff

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
I put it on my bike, bolted everything up, and went riding. It holds the bars on and doesn't flex at all. What more could you want.
