Better than carbon version...

I bought this stem along with the carbon version (EC90) to perform a side-by-side, Pepsi challenge styled comparison (remember those?). I liked this one better. Dimensionally and weight-wise they were identical. "They" say that 4-bolt patterns are better (I am not convinced one way or the other) and this one is 4-bolt. I think the two things that made me choose aluminum was price and style - the white stem looks much better than the black carbon with the upside down logo (when mounted 10 degrees up).
