This may be the wrong forum for this, but since I'm in the process of building my first fixed gear bike, I figured I'd start here.
I have a set of 64-40 Cinelli Drop bars that someone has chopped. I probably wouldn't have chopped them, but someone did and now they are mine so I'm going to use them.
I don't have a stem that will fit the bars (Cinelli needs 26.4mm clamp). I called a local LBS and they happened to have an old Cinelli stem and it fit (I was on cloud nine), they gave it to me for free
I've been looking on ebay and people want $50 and up plus shipping. The only down side to my new free stem is that it is missing a part that basically makes it useless.
Having done some research I've figured out it is a Cinelli 1R stem. It is missing the part that tightens up on the bars.
Does anyone have any idea where I could find replacement parts for an old Cinelli Stem? If not does anyone know where I can find an old Cinelli stem that is pretty cheap. And if not, how about any other stem that would fit 26.4 mm bars?
