anyone ever got one that cracked???
are the as rigid as other stems or is there flex on them????
thx a lot!
In a moment of madness I bought one on ebay. Fantastic condition - what a bargain.
I used a torque wrench to tighten the bolts. Did not even get halfway to the recommended torque - sheared the face - piece bolt and two steerer bolts
My wrench IS calibrated.
Replaced with stainless ( couldn't get Ti ) and rode. It is very flexy and felt horrible. Could not get the confidence to climb or sprint out of the saddle. I lasted two rides on it.
Also the colour is an acquired taste. But is it light
Now, does anyone want an ITM The Stem, barely used, fantastic condition......
