Strength:

Reasonably light, looks good, works

Weakness:

none yet

The thing works. Actually I bought it because the stock Bontrager stem was a short 25 degree rise stem. Come on, 25 degrees of rise on a bike with conservative geometry had me riding way too upright. This stem has filles the bill. Looks nice too as a bonus. Seems pretty solid, but I don't jump, so it really isn't stressed too much.

Strength:

Solid, well machined, no problems at all. FlipFlop design.

Weakness:

Not too lightwheight (190 grams @ 120 mm).

If you are not a wheight watcher, this is your stem. Particularly screws are solid (big diameter) so a torque tool is nor necessarily required IMHO.

(The Tune and Syntace's F99 seem to be much more sensitive with regard to overtorque.)

Strength:

Design, stiffness, strenght.

Weakness:

none

The best stem available. Strong and stiff, endurable. The Ritchey is lighter, but flexy. The Easton is o.k. except the taped on decals. Beware of the others: the Syncros is a pain in the neck to install, the race face tends to speak with you, the Kore does not fit evenly.

Strength:

Cool open face design. can be used + or- 6 degrees. 3d cold forged for kick ass strength. comes in black or silver with opposite color faceplate. Break from the norm.

Weakness:

they didn't get me a sticker with the purchase of the stem.

my bottom line is I hate riding the same stuff that every other donkey rides. If I can find a stem that is super tough, stiff, looks good,doesn't break me and I don't see 36 times every ride, I'll buy it. Alright, alright, alright.

Strength:

stiff,fit,reversible ,weight,looks good,price

Weakness:

just three sizes available

It's lines are very smooth(matches my frame very well).No sharp edges.Very well made.The double logos on the side and the rise(6 degree on a 120mm)makes it very versatile.Just pop off the front plate,reverse the stem and you get a 1 inch rise or drop.Even on the trail (in case of long downhills or climbs)worth the 50 secs it takes.Just mind the torque specs.The manual even instructs to forward it to the next owner in case you sell the stem.
How about this german grundlichkeit,eeh?
The 120 mm weighs 180 grams and that's without compromising stiffness.
All of that at about half the price of Syncros or Ringle makes it a great stem.
So i give it Vijf vijgen.
