Strengths:    Short, Strong, Durable

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
This stem is awesome for the kind of riding i do, If you are more of a freeride/ urban/ big hit/ downhill rider then this is the stem for you... if you ride cross country or whatever your gonna want something lighter longer and skinnier.

Strengths:    This is a great stem. It came stock on my Trek Jack 2. Light weight, strong, and pretty ridgid.

Weaknesses:    I have a mid size bike and I'm an average size guy, but this stem is too short for me. When I'm riding I feel like I'm hanging too far over the front of my bike. Not a comfortable riding experience.

Bottom Line:   
This is a good stem, I'm switching it to my Mongoose Black Diamond though.
