I've been looking at a Steeda, and I'm glad to see it at the top here. I have heard that they break more than expected, has anyone had trouble with that? I don't really want to spend the $$$ just to have it strand me somewhere.

^^I have the CFM and I think it's good. To be honest, I think my favorite aspect of it is the fact that it is adjustable and there are times where it just feels better in one position more than another. Strange I know. Guess I equate it to my changing how my seat sets now and then. I don't think you'd be dissapointed with it.

Forr the money? Can't beat rethreading and cutting an inch or two off the stocker, and moving the pivot point up.
