Adjustable Stem

I bought a 100mm adjustable stem for my cross bike build. When I dial it in the way I want, is it ok to keep it there, or should I replace it with a solid stem? I worry that little screw holding it together might flip me the bird one day.

the fixed angle one will weigh less..

Moots Ti, they have TIG welders that just drink green tea
from the precision bead they lay down.


My NL Koga bike came with an ITM CNC adjustable stem.
the designs of various companies differ,
these have the angle holding clamp, separate from the Pivot.

I have one on my tour bike I planned on replacing but found I like it to be adjustable from time to time. Mine is very solid I have no fear of it coming apart on me.
