cinelli 101 stem?

I've decided I'd like to have a longer stem on my derosa and the only thing I can find available right now in the size I want is the cinelli 101. Does anyone have any experience with this model? Is it really as ugly in real life as it looks in pictures? Should I wait til a 1A or 1R shows up?

what size do you need...PM me, and be sure to say if it's the early or late clamp diameter.

I think the 101 is fine looking stem, sure it wouldn't be appropriate on a '67 model B, but on the right build it could be a rather handsome addition.

p.s. God's bike has an XA.

It's for an early 80s bike, so the 101 a little out of period. At the time I bought it the 1R was the hot setup, which is what I have now. After riding another bike with a 1cm longer toptube and 1cm longer stem I have come to realize (after 25 years!) that the cockpit on the derosa is too short for me

The XA is sweet but I didn't find any of those floating in the bay I think the XA came out shortly after I bought the bike

I'm not sure why I care about period correctness. The bike has an ergo 9 speed drivetrain on it now anyway. Sometimes I think about putting the SR gruppo back on but I guess I've gotten lazy and like my indexed shifting
