    Only good if you can find the pinup plate for the top.

    i've never used one, but i like the way they look and i've read that they're very stiff.

    i've also heard good things about the 3t mutant stem. check that out if you haven't seen it

    They're not light, but they're cool looking, and supposedly among the stiffest stems ever made.

    It's really easy to strip the threading for the bolts on those things. You need to be really careful tightening it down.

    I've never used it but it was plenty stiff and stylish enough for Cipollini to use. The Alter pinups are an added bonus.
