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? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

3T mutant stem

I hate to post a thread like this, but I would love to find one of these stems for my IRO build and it seems to be nearly impossible to find. I need 1 1/8" threadless, standard bars, maybe 100-120 length, in silver. They all but don't exist on websites, when they do they are crazy expensive, and there is one on ebay but it's expensive as well.

I'd just get the one on ebay, but when I search old threads here I see people having bought them for $5 or $10 at chucks bikes, xxcycles, and a bunch of other places in the last few years.

Anyone know of a good place to find one, or have one they want to sell me? Used is fine.

Thanks guys.

-J

I'm pretty sure the Mutant has been out of production for a while now. I think the only place to get them is on eBay.

I bought a silver 110 off eBay yesterday or the day before for $20; they turn up for good prices from time to time, but they're generally more expensive now that they're out of production.

if you like the curvy look, the cinelli groove is another option. there should still be a few on ebay; i picked up a 90mm one a few weeks ago.

Well I haven't heard a word from piratelove, so if anyone else has any to offer, I guess PM me? Or I'll wait (not so) patiently?

I must have gotten lucky if these are so hard to find- I walked into Ye Olde Bike Shoppe in San Diego, asked for a threadless stem and the owner pulled out a 1 1/8 3T Mutant in silver and said "$10".
