i was thinking of gettin one, i got the swiss miss bars now, but i miss being able to set my own offset, and id rather have my bars slip than break off, im allways worried about that when i go into a hitchhicker, or when i mess some trick up and the bike goes flying, also im sick of hittin my knees off of those damn bolts!!!  ^_^

I've got one, I love the design of it, and unlike a few stems I've owned, I've never once had this one slip on me. Not the handlebars or the fork tube.

Dear TJ...who are you? lol I'm lost but I've been out of the scene for so many years, Chase Gouin was newer lmao I'm assuming he is one of the many pro riders here? I tried to look through his profile but not much other than the 2 threads I saw.

Im not sure but from what I've heard about him i think TJ is pretty rough on his bike and uses alot of the strongest parts. From what I've heard the stem is next to impossible to get onto alot of forks but is very solid and strong

I've heard alot of good things about this stem. The best I've heard so far though is how many people thought it made them a better person.

I had a Hook stem and loved it, recently i decided to switch up some things, but anyone should buy The Hook based on what Aaron said.
