Noted...



Actually, it doesn't show in the photo, but my Guid stem above has the opening at the back of the horizontal arm. Should that increase my wariness with that stem?
Cracking on the AVAS usually start at the quill slot while being used mounted in the steering tube as they did not relieve the end of the slot with a round hole, so the corners at the end of the slots created stress risers where the cracking usually starts....
I don't think there's any worries about the hole in the back of the Guide stem.....
