Strength:

none

Weakness:

way too flexy and wouldn't bind on my carbon steerer. seems just to be two aluminum tubes tacked together.

Flimsy and wouldn't fit well on my carbon steerer. At prescribed torque I got a creak from the stem from lack of tightness in bottom binder bolt. Even going slighlty over recommended torque wouldn't stop it. Only way to find this out was to put stem on bike and Rithey won't take it back now. Stem is VERY flexible. When it was on bike I could get way too much flex if I pushed on bars. I bought it because I wanted a -17 deg. stem, and have just bought a Thomson Elite x2 to replaces this POS.

Strength:

Weight, price and looks.

Weakness:

Not Free

What a great stem for the money, I cannot believe how light it is. My 120mm x 6 degree weighs 127 grams. I had a FSA K-force carbon stem that weighed 197 grams that was over double the price. The stem is nice looking, nice looking face plate, and feels solid to me.

Strength:

light weight, high strength/stiffness, looks great.

Weakness:

none so far.

Excellent stem. Light, stiff and does its job perfectly. Why buy a carbon stem when you can spend 1/2 the money and get this super light stem. I used to use a Specialized S-works carbon stem and this weights about 60g less and works every bit as well, if not better.
