Strengths:    Beefy, Stiff. Not too much $$$$

Weaknesses:    None really, except for a bit of creaking from the bar clamps(but you can't hear that when you're hucking off big stuff.

Bottom Line:   
Used with the FatboySlim 31.8 handlebar this is the best Bar/Stem combo I've ever used. I'm gonna put theses on my other 5 bikes.

Strengths:    everything, solid!4 bolt clamp, very sturdy!

Weaknesses:    Let me know if you find any! I couldnt!weight-bit heavy but you arent buying for XC!

Bottom Line:   
I wanted a short stem, all reviews gave it the thumbs up, value for money-if it broke cheap enough to replace! took a bit of getting use to, looks like it shouldnt work, but it does!I honestly cant fault this-its solid,cheap and looks realll funky on the front end! God knows I have had my crashes (yes bad ones 2!)-held together unmarked.

What can else can I say ....buy one-you wont be disappointed.-gave 4 chillis=I aint tried expensive stems..I wont have to,I would buy this again.
