    What stems are you using?

    Just wondering what stems you guys are using. I saw that incredible one made by Coast bicyles.

    What are you using? I'd like to find a nice chrome track stem.

    I have a cinelli bar/stem combo that looks like the coast one. I also have a nitto jaguar on my other bike

    The nitto jaguar is a very nice looking stem.

    Cinelli Grammo Pista. Ugly as sin by itself, but looks surprisingly good in this weird masculine/angular way when on the bike. Just posted this in the pics thread, but I likey:

    My road conversion has a Cinelli 1A stem w/Nitto bullhorns. A simple, elegant stem, imo.

    I'm running an SR quill stem; 110mm or so. It's holding down a set of really nice SR touring bars. My roadie, of course, is different due to the threadless forks, but my fixie is threaded baybee!

    I gots a 110mm ITM ChroMo stem. 1" threadless 25.4mm clamp diameter. (I love how the clamp, and steerer diameters are the same but are expressed in inches on one end and mm on the other). It was $10 new, it's stiff enough, light enough, and fits without any shims on either end. In other words it looks pretty boring, but works perfectly. Attaching handlebars to forks is a boring job, but somebody has to do it.

    P.S. I lust those fancy Coast, and Jonny Cycles hand brased quill stems.

    damn stiff. its semi vintage(most likely from the 80's) so i dunno if that has anything to anything. i like it, but i also hate it because im always freaking out about losing the hex bolt cap. other that its tits. (just dont try to change the bars!)

    I just got my 3t mutant. Looks really nice. I wanted something that would make it easy to switch between drops and bullhorns.
    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

    The swine comment was an attempt at humor, not an insult. Chill.

    I'm rocking a nice old 80mm 3ttt stem that I picked up at the Bike Church for a mere $3.
