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)

Cinelli Stem

I just won a bid on ebay for a Cinelli stem. It's the correct size and measurement for the bike that I'm building, but I don't know much about Cinelli. Can you guys give me some feedback, as far as how I did with this bid? I won it for the price of $26.

Thanks for your help.

I have one of those. They look really nice an clean. And for a short one like you got the price is not bad in my opinion, considering they become harder to find.

90mm or 100 seems like they usually go for $40 to 50 so good deal me thinks. I got one for $20 but it was 120mm. Needed it for a bike I was selling so worked out fine.

Damn - I missed that auction, or you would NOT have won it for that little.

Very tough to find decent XA's in that length with a 26.0 clamp.

Just bought an 85mm XA for 45, +20shipping, and paid 50 more to have it anodized once I got it.

Nice catch.

Thanks, everyone. I feel better about buying it, then.
I'll share picture when I receive the custom-made frame and build it up.

Cheers.
