Craigslist CF road bike stem, thoughts?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Craigslist CF road bike stem, thoughts?

I noticed this on craigslist the other day, and I just want an opinion on this. If it does work for my bike(I'll check in the morning.) Would it be worth it? The seller, not having a lot of info regarding brand etc.. kind of worries me. I won't die if I go without a Carbon fiber stem. I just have a little extra cash laying around.

For me it would be about peace of mind. If I really wanted a CF stem, I'd probably want a new name brand one so I wasn't thinking about it. That said, it's probably fine...

if the guy can't even get you some basic information I would totally skip it. if you can't even tell the degree and clamp/bar size then it's could be a total waste of time(just like being here : ) )
