    Anything really. A stem is a stem pretty much. Except Eastern ones.

    I wish I could flatland! I just hate pulling a Lurch reaching for the bars when the bike is low from the ramp deck. A little more room when the bars are backwards as well, and a closer feel to forward

    As long as its the right length, the right height, isnt too weak for your riding style, can actually hold your bars in place, and doesnt just pinch together instead of tightening up on your forks

    Ive only seen a few break where they hold the bars, and I've only broken one there (from running it inverted when it wasn't meant to be). I've seen plenty of threadless stems snapped from overpinching on the steer tube, especially on poorly spec'd or poorly QC'd steer tubes. Not the stems' fault

    I've seen many stems that were just not capable of holding the bars in place

    I bent my old DK stem. My Fit top load stem is nice, but i need to adjust it every so often.
