Strength:

Simple, burly, good looking, inexpensive.

Weakness:

Heavy (341 grams). 6 bolt face plate can be a bit of a hassle to set up but no problems experienced.

Not bad, but better options are avialable, including other stems from the Funn range. Very stiff, perhaps overkill my my mainly trail riding, but overall im happy with it.

Strength:

relatively lightweight for a block of machined aluminum, looks cool.

Weakness:

4mm 6 bolt pattern not strong enough for 31.8 bar. First one bolt stripped, then another, and finally it wouldn't hold the bar anymore. I made sure that all bolts were torqued to the proper spec, greased, tightened in the right sequence etc.

Not worth it, spend your money on a sic or something with proper sized bolts, ie 5 mm at least.

Strength:

Overly Burly and Built. Awesome looking. Strong as hell.

Weakness:

Stock face bolts are TOOOOOO short, but can be fixed, see my bottom line below.

I think this stem is better suited for freeriders and the All-Mountain use it's getting from me. There has been complaints about the face bolts stripping, they are TOO short stock, I don't know if FUNN has fixed this problem yet but I simply took the stock bolts to my local hardware store and got stainless steel replacements that were 1/4 longer than the junk stock ones it fixed the problem right now, cost about $1.00 to fix. So if your really set on getting one of these stems be prepaired to do the above and then get out there and ride!!!
