Super Clean Moots/Chris King Stem Collaboration Found at NAHBS
Even with the reputation of being one of the most precise companies in the biz, apparently even Chris King appreciates the incredible smoothness that is Moots welding. So, it makes sense that when they were looking to have two completely integrated stem/spacer/headset top cap made for their Cielo show bikes, calling up Moots was an easy decision.
The result is a ridiculously clean, made in the US stem that incorporates every part above the upper headset bearing. The stem has such a clean look, that at first glance you may confuse it for being a threaded stem, rather than the clever threadless model it really is.
In addition to the road stem shown above, Moots also made a special cross stem for CK that includes an integrated cable stop and barrel adjuster for cleaning up the lines on a cross bike.
Check out some pics of the cross stem, along with the complete Cielo bike after the break!
