Date Reviewed: December 8, 2009

Strengths:    hasn't broken, easton qualitym, cheap

Weaknesses:    could use a little more rise, wish it was a 4 bolt stem. knowing it's bottom of the barrel as far as easton goes

Bottom Line:   
***first off, just wanted to point out that the EA30 pictured isn't the EA30 stem that was recalled. the 4 bolt ea30 stem was recalled which went into production after this one.***

This came stock on my '06 RM ETSX-10. It does the trick, but i'm upgrading for something beefier. The two bolt system worries me sometimes, but i haven't had any issues with the hard riding i do.
