I've owned both AVA and Pivo stems over the years and never had either break on me, but I've seen a few AVA stems that did fail. Never a Pivo though. Most I've run across were on Motobecane and Gitane bikes from the early to mid 70's. The two AVA stems I saw that failed broke off between the stem bolt and the bars, not at the usual point where it enters the fork tube.
