Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer?

90mm Nitto Jaguar Stems?

Does anyone know of any online stores that stock the Nitto Jaguar stems (steel or alluminum models) in 90mm length? Most of them seem to stock 100mm and up.

58 or 65 degree?
in case you haven't:
take into consideration that you will more than likely need a longer dropped stem than your flat stem - at least that how is was for me.

anyhone else have input on this? (and yes, we all know the "size for comfort" deal, just checking in to see if anyone went longer on their track-angled stem if they have one)

found this: http://www.yellowjersey.org/nitto.html, which would lead me to believe that anyone carrying nitto can score a 90 from EAI for you.

yes, but the steel comes in 58 or 65, and the link also stated this info. I just guessed everyone could figure that out on their own.

another interesting tidbit: the steel comes in a size longer than the aluminium

does anyone know why nitto doesn't offer the alluminum model in 65 degrees? is it just the least popular angle among track racers? i prefer that angle but not the price tag connected with the steel model.
