After getting what seemed like a good deal on these bars I've found some haunting info about stem compatibility and bar failure.
One review indicates that Easton only warrentied these bars when installed with their 2 bolt stem. For the life of me I can't see how a wisely torqued 4 bolt stem wouldn't suffice.
I understand that, in either case, one doesn't want to crush-cut fibers of the tube but is it really that critical that a 2 bolt stem be used?
