Solid, light, no protruding bolts. Looks good.
nope. I have nothing to add to that!
I replaced my OEM stem with an Elite to shorten my reach. It's performed flawlessly for over a year. Get the best, you won't be disappointed.
Yes I would recommend it to a friend

Black or Silver, Al, Many lengths/ 0/5/15 degree increments. Stiff and Light! 4 bolt, wide clamp length (48mm). No bolts/ Nuts (except my own) to fall onto.
?? None?? Not sold in combination with the seatpost (Quick call Bill Gates, he'll fix that)
Of all the Stems I've ridden (XC), none have made me as proud as this one. Best looking, No Flexing, No Creaking sounds (I'm Heavy and I love to get over the bars). Thomson has given me this life time friend. (Smack on wood! Down with 1.5 standard) I'll buy another when I get another bike.
I've already advised my friends to buy the stem. On friend went with a Salsa and he wishes he didn't.
