    Most beautiful 1.1/8th Threadless stem I have yet seen!

    New item added to my wish list!

    ITM Uniko Carbon stem.

    I'm still partial to these

    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    Oh!!!! Hang on, I meant this model









    I do like Thomson stuff, but the stems look a bike like someones fist grabbing the bars. I prefer the smoother lines of quill stems and this seems to match that better!

    I really like those integrated top caps.

    Well it's not 1.1/8", but I still think the most beautiful threadless stem I've seen is my Cinelli grammo. (Yup, it's Ti)


    Excuse the crap pictures.

    not so much into carbon stems. I guess I'm more for polished Al.

    ITM UNKO?
    that's the word for crap in japanese
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    I'm a sucker for Nitto Jaguar in black, and Thomson Elite in black too.

    That was my first thought also. The graphics in the stem make it worse because of the stylized i in the name!

    Those other stems are nice, but if they did the iTM with no graphics, it would beat all the others!

    Can't be shiny polished aluminium though....
