Stiff like hell. Light. Nice looks.

Weakness:

none as i can see

I think it fullfills anything i want in a stem. Light, strong, stiff and not to expensive. And good looks. What more is there?

Strength:

stiff like my dick, light like my nuts (as I am impotent from biking)

Weakness:

Zero
well, the graphics wear off a little

Nice stuff. Its hard to imagine a nicer stem outside the foolish realm of titanium parts (me and my aluminum parts will take it to you anyday, chumps). Anyway, the graphics have worn off the sides a little, but I do crash alot for a good racer. Other than that, its a darn good part.

Strength:

Does its job and looks sharp doing it.

Weakness:

Gives me no reason to get a Thompson, argghhh!

Who cares what this thing weighs. Beefy welds give me peace of mind. I especially like the open section on the a$$ end of the stem where it clamps the steerer tube.
