North Shore Billet’s Prototype AM Stem

North Shore Billet has been around now since all 2003, yet they are still somewhat unknown, especially in segments of the US Market. As Marc reported recently, this certainly isn’t due to lack of effort, or attention to detail. In fact, their disc brake adapters clearly show that NSB does sweat the small stuff, and their dedication to high precision machining shows through in the end.

For a while NSB has been pumping out cable guides, disc brake adapters, and derailleur hangers. While Peter has been working on stems for years according to their blog, this is the first stem they have to show to the public. The NSB AM stem is still a prototype, but it certainly looks good from here.

This particular prototype is machined (in house, of course) from 6061 T6 aluminum, features M6 bolts front and back, and is 70mm in length.

Check out a few more angles, along with the custom hollow cap after the break!

That’s lovely, a cross between the Sunline V1 AM and the Raceface Atlas AM. (but polished, the best finish of all!) Superb!
