The steer clamp has a tear-drop shape that, if over-tightened, can bend. I ran this stem on my AM bike due to the wider face plate and short length, but, while installing it, overtightened the steer clamp which caused the clamp edges to bend and touch. While tightening, I was waiting for more of a "feel" of secureness as opposed to using a torque wrench. It was easy to overtighten. As a result, it was difficult to remove.
As noted, this is more of a potential user issue and not necessarily a problem with the product. I've since purchased another for use on another bike - again, due to wide face plate, available short stem length and look. I just know now that, with this stem, I have to be more careful when tightening the steer clamp.

The only Con (only reason 4 out of 5) is that the spacer that comes with the headset is about 1mm short of what it actually needs to be. Thankfully I had an extra 1mm add on spacer and it went in perfectly.
