    Strengths:    Light, strong, shorter than stock stem.

    Weaknesses:    None so far.

    Bottom Line:   
    Does what it's supposed to do. Hold the bars. Best is that is lowered and brought in the bars to where I can manage the bike better.

    Strengths:    reasonable weight, stiff, strong, nice looking. This is the Race Lite version.

    Weaknesses:    none-it does what it's supposed to.

    Bottom Line:   
    It does the job. What else do you want? Some people feel compelled to buy some magnesium piece of crap stem for $150 to replace it becuase it might save some weight. The looks of this are solid too, not as nice as the thomson I had on another bike but works just as well and see no reason to buy an after market one. It seems the Bontrager race lite components on this bike get a bad rap, the sh$t is well designed and it works. I have the cash the to piss away on bike parts but don't see the need to for something like this.

    Strengths:    Light, nice looking, strong

    Weaknesses:    The tread lock on the screw is too thick making it hard to screw in the stem.

    Bottom Line:   
    Nice looking stem. It is only 170gm for 120mm length & 7 degree rise. You can see the quality of that stem is the 1st class. It holds the stemp tight and that is the main function of a stem. I like this stem myself & would like to recommend to my friends. However, it is a little price.
