    “good vs bad”

    The Good:

    I dont care what anyone says i have been riding this frame for over a year now and it hasnt dented my forks or stripped out.

    The Bad:

    I havent found anything wrong with them!

    Overall Review:

    This is a good stem to have! Just make sure u dont tighten it too much.. they dont really dent your forks or anything like that.. Eastern is a good quality brand! This and the eastern choker are the same except that one is a top load and one is just regular.. dont listen to anyone that says it strips really easily or it comes loose and ecpeccialy about the whole dents ur forks!

    “dont even think about it”

    The Good:

    nothing at all

    The Bad:

    pinches ur forks, and dents them pretty bad

    Overall Review:

    they sucks, the pinch fucks up your forks, and the bolts lossen up and strip fast
