    Strength:

    superior torsional stiffness, wide bar-clamp, came with a bike. This stem is neutral enough to evaluate handlebars.

    Weakness:

    an ounce or two and a few mm extra steer tube hieght which are actually hidden strength when facing a 4 footer.

    Stiffness and quiet, secure clamps are a stems purpose. This is the stiffest xc stem for the price I've tried.

    Strength:

    Strong and stiff enough

    Weakness:

    Weight heavier than claimed and steel bolts rusted after the first wet ride.

    The stem is listed at 160 grams. It weighed 192g for the 100mm. Would not have noticed it, but I swaped it for a lower rise stem. Plenty good enough, but I would have been unhappy to spend the money on this with it being a bit heavier than claimed. Steel bolts rusted inside the head after the first ride.

    Strength:

    Holds handlebars, looks good.

    Weakness:

    Definitely heavier than advertized. Single bolt clamp looks ill... it will have to earn my trust.

    I actually read the review below before I bought it on Ebay. Thought big deal.... weighs a little more than advertised. I know I shouldn't expect much for 6 bucks, but it really feels heavy. I bought it to replace a Ritchey Comp, thinking the comp is nothing but a low end stick of aluminum, but the Ritchey is considerably lighter. I thought the Fast Al would be a real light weight cross country stem. Oh well. I also bought it because I wanted it to match my seatpost. So that's what I get. So my advice is: buy it if you find it for $6 on Ebay and want to match your Titec seatpost.
