In pretty much all questions like this, I start with the assumption that if you have to ask if it's safe, it's not safe. That can change if you can get solid opinions from reliable sources that it's okay, I'm not hearing that here. I'd say don't do it..

Think of it another way: How much pain from and damage to your teeth (failed stem or bars) or nuts (failed seat post) are you willing to endure?
