Submitted by Tyler a Weekend Warrior from Foothills, Ca

Date Reviewed: April 16, 2006

Strengths:    Strength, build, precision, value

Weaknesses:    Like everyone elses review, those anti-knee cuts in the metal.

Bottom Line:   
Unbelievable for the price. Its hard to manufacture such a product and make a worth while profit for the price I accumulated this stem for. Its strong, firm, and can take a beating. It's CNC milling makes it lighter (still on the heavy side though), and agree's with my all around style riding.

Strengths:    PRICE!

Weaknesses:    SHARP EDGES!

Bottom Line:   
awesome deal. people don't realize that weyless usually offers a darn good product. even if it's not the best you still cant beat the price! just got an mt-4 stem off ebay for 9 bucks including shipping. i was the only bidder! as others mentioned before, the sharp edges on these things are brutal to the knee, but that's the only weakness. i'm happy to see it has some heft, means it'll stay strong!

Date Reviewed: December 16, 2003

Strengths:    -Low Price
-Quality finish


Weaknesses:    -Weyless is a silly name and has an ugly logo

Bottom Line:   
This stem is a great buy. It's a quality heavy build and I have no complaints about it's performance. It's solid and does the job without any flex. The paint finish is on par with other similar cnc'd designs out there. Weyless is a silly name IMO, but that's just a superficial rant.
For the record, this is a review for the 45mm size. I don't have any issues with buyng Supergo Weyless house brand stuff because they subcontract parts manufacturer that make parts for other fancy name brands.

Date Reviewed: January 22, 2003

Strengths:    CHEAP! Stiff, Beefy

Weaknesses:    HEAVY

Bottom Line:   
This thing is for drops, hucks, and just plain abuse. It's heavy, but you should expect that if you plan on buying it. It works. What you see is what you get. And DANG! That price!!!

Strengths:    Nice looking. Well made. Strong. Stiff

Weaknesses:    Ugly Weyless Logo. I needed to put something bad about it.

Bottom Line:   
Great stem for the money. Was going to get Azonic, but it costs almost three times more. This one may not look as fancy, but it looks just as good.

Submitted by Joe Metrisin a Weekend Warrior from 2915 SE Ranch Acres Circle Jupiter, FL. USA

Date Reviewed: November 14, 2002

Strengths:    Price is right
Very strong


Weaknesses:    A little on the heavy side
Sharp edges on top plate are dangerous.


Bottom Line:   
I bought this stem because it was the cheapest I could find in this length. I was very happy with it until I had a bad crash while jumping a log pile. My knee landed on the sharp edge of the stem and gave me a nasty gash. This stem has sharp edges all around the top plate right where you are likely to hit it if you crash. If you buy one, tape some foam around the edges for safety. I wanted to send an E-mail to the company suggesting they round the edges a bit, but they don't even have a website.

You get a lot for what you pay for. It's very strong and takes a lot of abuse. If you're looking for a short stem, this is the right one.

Submitted by Bob a Weekend Warrior from Syracuse, NY (USA)

Date Reviewed: July 28, 2002

Strengths:    PRICE! for 25 bones this is a great deal.

Weaknesses:    Weight, it is on the heavy side (I have the longer 110mm{i think}) and it is kind of porky, but not out of reason for what it is designed for.

Bottom Line:   
Great deal on a good stem. If you are rough on equipment or need the strenght it seems up to the task. If weight is a concern look elsewhere.

Date Reviewed: March 31, 2002

Strengths:    -nice bar placement
-low price
-stiff


Weaknesses:    -nothing major
-the corners of the front clamp should be rounded off a bit


Bottom Line:   
The 80mm length provides a nice compromise between pedaling efficiency and control in techical terrain. It has also taken some decent hits without complaint. It may not be as pretty as some of its competition, but it works well-and it's cheap.
