i love the old cinelli stems. They look great, they're stiff, and did i mention OMG THEY LOOK AMAZING.

from a structural standpoint, i trust them plenty, the only thing you might want to worry about is if for some reason you are skidding and bang your junk against the stem, you are not going to be very happy. i mean, oyu wont be happy with either stem, but oyu will be even less happy with the cinelli, as its kinda pointy. in conclusion, i would say get the cinelli, then decide you hate it, and then trade it to me for a nitto. Or get the cinelli and trade it immediately for the nitto aa i am getting rid of. you know, whatever is easiest for you

oh, and check the cinelli for rust. some surface rust is fine within reason, but use good judgement.
