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)

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

New item added to my wish list!

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.

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....
