    French size stems.

    I have been doing some looking around for a nicer French size stem 22.0 in a longer length 100-130 for one of my bikes that I was going to sell but will now likely keep to make it a little better fit. I have had little luck in a price range within reason for a used a stem. Is it just me or are stems like this just made of Unatanium or Ubertanium making them nearly impossible to find at affordable price? I know they exist and are out there because my other bike has one that I got at the local bike coop.

    Atax made lots of French sized stems for companies like Peugeot and are usually priced less than other brands if you do find them.

    I have seen a lot of the Atax's looking around but only in shorter sizes 70-90 and I want a long stem 100+.

    Some also list these Atax stems as just "Peugeot stem" at Ebay. A few more might pop up for you if you if you enter that for a search.

    I am pretty sure I have a couple of 130mm reach French stems, seventies or eighties vintage. Send me a PM if you want me to check.
