The DA stem is way nice! I road one for years. My memory is that it creaked. That was always a bit concerning. I probably didnít maintain it as I should have. Most beautiful ever made.

Never had a creak come from any of mine but then again I’ve only owned about a dozen over the last 40 years. I polished one up and it is gorgeous. I even had a buddy mill a replacement cap for me out of stainless steel. No Shimano on that one for those so easily triggered ❄️. That’s it on the Tesch, or was it.

I have a bike that I just recently built up that a dura ace stem would be perfect for. It is a Fuso with 7700. I have my radar turned on. Maybe I can find one.

Theyíre out there. They are a perfect match for 7700 parts.

The exposed portion of road bars is only three or four inches total. Install a cheap bar that looks goodÖpolish it to match the stem, even. Use the combination while you wait and save for the matching bars. Itís possible you could get another eBay deal!

yup! I got a set of Schwinn Paramount take-off wheels from about 1972 or so with the original tubular tires Not cracked and held air, plus a Regina Oro FW for $23 and only $25 shipping , I was the only bid





this is how they came. A little soap and water and they came up like new!
