Wanted 110mm Ambrosio Steel Stem

My beautiful 1959 Olmo has a top tube that is just too short for me. I'm hoping to improve the fit with a longer stem. I'm willing to try anything between 100mm and 120mm.
I would consider an early Fiamme stem also. I'd really love to make this bike fit.

I had the same problem with my Olmo. I ended up installing a cinelli bar and stem. It’s not as pretty as the original steel stem. Good luck finding the right stem.

I whipped mine out, measured, and as usual, fell short of expectations. 90mm.

Thanks Randy. Those adjustable stems have become big dollar items. Their primary appeal to me is their novelty. I prefer the look of the traditional stem.

@obrentharris, it was sort of tongue-in-cheek considering the price. They are cool but I’m with you in the looks. I picked up a 3ttt adjustable/“regolabile” stem in excellent condition, with superleggero bars, new tape, and plugs a few years back for $140. I wish I could pucks stocks like that.

Good luck with your search.
