I'm building my own bicycle, using a Surly Pacer frame and Campy parts (for the most part). As you probably know, the frame is steel (good old steel!)
That gives it, I feel, nicer lines than carbon, aluminum or ti frames. Plus, it has nice lug work! Anyway, since I'm finding that I'm enjoying the looks of a bicycle with this quality, I wanted to go one step further. I think, aesthetically, handlebar stems of today suck. Oh, back to the days of Cinelli stems that were smooth, sleek and sexy!
I'm wondering if the new Pacer frame can take this type of stem; if so, are there any stems out there that can had? (Other than taking the Cinelli off my 1976 Mosemann.
Thanks for any thoughts.
