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)

What brand of stem is this?

Hi Everyone,

Sorry for the bad angle, but I was wondering if anyone could help me determine the make of stem (whose logo is visible) in the photo? Thanks!

sweet. Thanks a lot. I was wondering if it was an IRO, but had not seen the logo on their other components before.

Thanks again.
