Does it really crush bars and slip and all that like people say or is it all rumors?

the v3 seems to slip alot. i have 2 friends with it and their bars slip quite a bit. the v1 was garbage. didnt grip bars at all. the v2 was the best one. i dont remember any problems with it. grab a v2 if you can find one

Don't know about the v3, but the v1 I had sucked balls. It slipped a lot and squashed to top of my steer tube. Probably from over tightening... I think the issue was it applied unequal amounts of force to the bars vs. steer tube. I could never get it tight enough without cranking down the bolt. Eventually it got to the point where the bolt was so far in that is stopped and just lost all clamping power. I've avoided wedge stems since.

But It did feel great and It didn't slip at all when I first rode it. One big drop or two later and it pooped on me.

Depending on what bars you have. If you have cheap, low quality material handle bars they will crush, Also it depends on what kind of compression bolt you have. Say S&M who use the freestyle star nut lots of room to crush where as Odyssey use a H.24 compression bolt which has the threads machined into the steerer & the compression bolt supports it as you tighten the stem so it wont crush. I know a lot of people who swear by them, never liked the look of them myself.
