    Steel 1 1/8" threadless stems?

    Anyone know of any nice steel stems? Also comfort bars, again preferably steel, something like the Nitto Dove bar.

    Why in the heck would you want a steel bar and stem?
    it can't be a vibration issue since a carbon bar with a good quality AL stem will do just as good of a job, if not better.

    If you MUST have steel try Rivendell, personally I've worked on too many bikes whose handlebars had bubbling rust bursting through chrome.

    Nitto stuff is nice, and it's not chrome which is a plus, but it seems a bit roadie.

    You still haven't explained your desire for steel parts

    Aesthetic, for the most part.

    For once I'm at a loss for words. Steel isn't anymore aesthetcally pleasing in the form of a stem and handlebar than anything else. I can understand steel frames especially those with lugs, but I'm not buying into steel bars and stems looking better

    In my opinion a steel stem looks nicer than an Al one. I don't think matters of taste can be intelligently argued, but feel free to try.
