I'v had a Ritchey adjustable stem for several years, now. No noticeable flex. Couple of ounces weight penalty. Handy to be able to adjust stem angle as I've changed my position somewhat and also it moved from my old bike to new. But adjustment is not something you'd be doing in the middle of a brevet on a whim, as it takes several minutes, and if you have a bar bag then it's angle is wrong, post-adjustment.
