good when greased
very nice, tough, utilitarian looking stem.
there have been a number of reviews with bolt issues, or the bar not on tight enough (mtbr). it is true that the bolts are small, at least relative to the bolts on my easton havoc stem.
to resolve the bolt issue put some (teflon) grease on bolt threads to prevent binding. it's easy enough to then tighten sufficiently.
it's a very good stem- light and strong. bomb-proof thus far.
although i've not had any issues with this stem, minus 1 star for those who've had bolts break or afraid to tighten sufficiently and had their bars move.
looks very cool too.
