Strength:

light, cool-looking... that's about it.

Weakness:

very expensive, really flexy, not front-loading, top cap comes off easily.

this stem is not really worth the amount of money that people spend on it. it is cool because it is so light and it's ti, but it is way too flexy-> I could hold the front wheel still and flex the bars so that the ends moved more than 1 inch up and down (and the one I had was 90mm!). lightness is good, but not at the expense of so much performance.

Strength:

Titanium strength, lightweight, and excellent finish. Welding and and materials are great!

Weakness:

None except price...yet cheap when compared to other Ti stems such as Ibis or Litespeed.

The best affordable Ti stem you can buy....it looks great on any bike and will save some considerable weight over standard quill stems. It is available in both the 26.0 standard and Cinelli 26.4 stem. This is one of the few stems that didn't slip in the steerer tube. Cinelli craftmanship at its best.

Weakness:

None

It looks very pretty and even sturdy, but in fact it is VERY flexy. The reviewer below obviously NEVER rides his bike or never rides out of his saddle. Craftsmanship is so so, the front bolt is very badly made, not only a bit bent but also too loose on the allen wrench(it's not the allen wrench's problem because I have three sets of them). Apart from weight savings and looks, it is a bad stem. You could put it on a show bike and impress your friends that your bike is 16.5lbs. That's it. Overall it is not even as good as a $50 Controltech.
