Rating:
The Good:

pretty solid, lightweight,

The Bad:

i had the front stem bolts snap from over tightening but they are only like half the diameter in the threads but i contacted eastern about it and they sent me a whole new stem

Overall Review:

great stem, looks great, solid, only thing i would change is the bolts

The Good:

light as shit. good colors. sleek look

The Bad:

nothing at all

Overall Review:

fig your dumb ass hell. why the fuck does everybody have to trash on eastern. their parts are gonna break like any other part but your just like a bunch of dumb asses who have one defect in their part and think that part and brand are total garbage. but your a dumbtard and probably overtighted the the bolt and thats why you destroyed the threads. and yes you CAN overtighten bolts to the point of which they break. they arent indestructable like you must think they are.....

perks47 is dumb and a little overweight

Rating:
The Good:

light.....

The Bad:

the threads inside the stem stripped out, when i tightened the bolts the threads came out looking like a spring

Overall Review:

the stem is light but weak, and you can never "over tighten" a bolt, bolts only have one purpose, to be tightened and if the cant do that than they're just garbage, and figures it comes from eastern, i had the eastern choker, and the fork clamp bolt stripped, never get anything eastern, ever

Great Part From Eastern

Rating:
The Good:

I think it looks great. I weigh around 200 lbs and do plenty of drops to flat, hops, and crashes and my bars haven't moved at all.

The Bad:

It has moved on the fork a couple of times, only after hard crashes, no more than any other stem i've had, and i've had them all.

Overall Review:

The only problems I see that people are having is dumbasses over tightining the bolts. I COULD BREAK ANY BOLT IN ANY STEM IF JUST WANTED TO TRASH ON SOMEBODY'S SHIT. QUIT BEING DUMBASSES. I'm not gonna say its the only stem to have, but there's nothing better out there.
