Yeah, I've got two right now, I replaced my 10-foot-tall Technomic stem with the Pearl. I was thinking of selling the old one, but I might just chop it down and get a new stem bolt. At least I could have one spare set with bullhorns or risers or something...

Please don't chop it. I have other stems to trade if you want something else. PM me. Also remember you may want a different stem for bullhorns than for drops. The stem on my bullhorns is much shorter than my drop or riser stems.

your ftp has always been my favorite. i wouldn't mess with the errebi straps, i just had to retire mine because they were literally falling apart. i guess i had them for about a year, though, so just don't expect too much more out of them.

the mks straps are solid and tend to be cheaper than toshis.

Here are a couple pics of a converted '72 Schwinn Continental:

First has gold velocities, kmc kool chain, original one piece crank, original handlebars & center pull brake.

Second had added truvativ BB conversion kit and Sugino RD crank/ chainring, Soma straight bar, and side pull brake. Oh and a sweet brass bell.
