The original triple clamp is made of cast alloy, this one machined from one solid block is for sure stronger and has way better quality control.

Where's this fucking "safety issue" you're talking about?

Yeah, a forged part would be even stronger but a stout billet part is MUCH stronger than the original.

Damn some people rub me the wrong way!....
