Strengths:    holds my riser bar all i can ask from it, looks good and they have plenty of sizes

Weaknesses:    aluminum- i wish it was steel

Bottom Line:   
At first i bought the threaded one that i can install directly to my fork but then i made the mistake of installing a 26 mm road bar that it isnt designed for and i paid for it because that ripped the threads off of the item. the second one I bought was the threadless one with a threadless quill adapter and it seems to be holding up well.Notice: DON'T INSTALL ROAD BARS ON THE MOUNTAIN VERSION OF THE BOA STEM

Strengths:    "Rocky BalBOA"

Weaknesses:    2 bolt plate.

Bottom Line:   
It's enough for cross country use and light free riding. I use the 130deg, 65mm length to bring my handle bars higher and closer to me. I haven't seen too many stems out there offer this degree of comfort for the casual rider (outside of adjustable stems) for threadless setups. It's perfect on my Mtn. bike-gone-street bomber. While the BOA isn't as appealing as 3D forged stems, the thick welds make this a sturdy construction. ROCKY! ROCKY! ROCKY!

Date Reviewed: April 18, 2007

Strengths:    I have the 90mm x 40° version and it's very nice geometry for me because I like to sit pretty upward but also like a flat bar for long distances, to have the use of bar ends. This stem is perfect for me on my current frame (which is a tad too big).

Weaknesses:    None that I know off

Bottom Line:   
It's very good value and plenty stiff for me although I'm 230 lbs. Haven't had problems so far. If you like a strong, cheap stem, go for it. I love mine.

Date Reviewed: December 9, 2006

Strengths:    Hasn't broke yet

Weaknesses:    A little flex

Bottom Line:   
This stem is a little flexy. I ride fairly hard on a marginal bike. This is one part I just picked up in an emergency to get back to the race in angel fire cuz I broke the previous one. So far for about 4 years now this part hasn't broke. Although i would like something a little stiffer.

2013 Specialized S-works EVO Boa problems?

I'm curious if anyone else is having problems on the revised BOA 2 system? I put 2 rides on them and then became trapped in the shoe, ha! Took them into my local LBS and they went to replace the left top one. When inspecting the others, the store manager said all 4 were really bad. Replaced for f ... Read More »

S-Works BOA innards

I've received some parts for my S-Works shoes. The old BOA parts looked like this: [url][/url] (the spools are all plastic). On the new parts however, the spools have small metal tips on them. Did I get the wrong parts, or can I use them? Thanks.Read More »

Thinking I might try a pair of their mtb shoes. The ones I'm looking at have the new Boa closure at the top--are folks finding this system ... Read More »

I wanted to send praise out to the boa company. Recently I was having a problem with the boa lacing reel on my Lake MTB shoes.
