you get what you pay for. cheap stuff is more likely to break. you probably tightened it unevenly.

you overtightened it.

sounds like user error.

i know a guy who has broken 3 Redneck stems the same way.

trails are not skateparks, they exist solely from the work and dedication of local riders. so next time you start complaining about not having local trails to ride, you only need look at yourself.

Cracked faceplates are almost ALWAYS user error... Over-tightening, not staggering the bolts when you tighten it. If you weigh 115lbs. then there should be NO reason for you to crack ANY stem unless maybe you cased the crap out of the front end and I'm sure you would have got broke off if that would have happened. "I've seen 3 broken deceptikon stems I only weight 115 pounds", Huh? No stem is indestructible but I've had my same deception stem for about 4 years... Broke a bolt tightening it but that's it. I weigh quite a few pounds more than you and guarantee that I have put this thing through way more abuse than you will ever see. I saw a Profile stem and a Fit stem quote on the same experience, both kids had no clue the correct way to tighten a stem. My guess if a little dude like you would learn how to put one on, then you and your buddies would quit seeing broken faceplates.

You are correct Tommy, You should also use grease to prevent the bolts stripping and binding. That is usually the point where kids pull out the cheater bars or bring out the huge wrenches. Those must be some pretty big stair gaps to be bustin' faceplates. Sucks about your foot. Get well soon man. You should make a post... " My leg Sucks!" and write about how bad your leg sucks because you pushed it past it's limits and how you'd never get another one of those! That would be awesome!

over tightening will forsure cause a stem to crack. think of it like this. if you tighten one side all the way and the the other side all the way the first side you tighten has double or even triple the pressure pushing down on it. than it should. that will cause a crack
