stem from am original stumpy?

atganirider - 02/11/13 - 7:26am

Nitto mtb stem c.1985

Jack - 02/11/13 - 7:43am

MTB stem and workshop slingshot. (deadly) Sorry this is bike rumour … let me be the first… a campagnolo seatpost. (quiet applause the crowd loves a familiar funny)

Zach - 02/11/13 - 7:47am

Bull Moose double clamp quill stem.

gringo - 02/11/13 - 7:49am

Nitto MTB could be it.

I had one of these on my 1985 Miyata

Nash - 02/11/13 - 7:57am

Is it for joining two sets of handlbars together for extra big people, like the cranfield man?

Cpt. Obvious - 02/11/13 - 8:18am

Sachs nipple clamp

adam - 02/11/13 - 8:36am

That could legitimately be a campy seat and post… just add leather. But it also looks like a bullmoose stem I had on a Schwinn MTB which is a few years older than me

ant1 - 02/11/13 - 9:46am

campy leaf rake. model name lombardia, i think.

Jeff - 02/11/13 - 10:47am

That is a Campy limited edition corkscrew!

Jeff - 02/11/13 - 10:49am

…actually that is a Campy TT stem.

MB - 02/11/13 - 12:45pm

I can’t wait for the day when they post an actual Campy seatpost.

reverend dick - 02/11/13 - 12:50pm

Sakae stem.

Well it’s a Monday Mystery Pic so it has to be some sort of 90’s cantilever brake……

Sean - 02/11/13 - 1:29pm

Not anywhere near as smooth, perhaps this link’s an older version:

joby - 02/11/13 - 2:58pm

About a pound and a half no longer required on your front end…

Hashbrowns - 02/11/13 - 3:58pm

Boat anchor.

Klunker - 02/11/13 - 4:13pm

It`s a early 80`s slingshot stem…

thor - 02/11/13 - 4:39pm

sakae mtb stem….. we used to buy loads of them and built them in almost all our early Mtb’s ( very early eighties in Germany … if I remember)

best Thor

DeeEight - 02/11/13 - 8:42pm

Sakae stem, hell I have one for sale along with the rest of the early 80s bike it came with…

2WheelFetish - 02/11/13 - 9:06pm

It’s Specialized’s version of the Sakae MT-100 stem (which also required the MT-100 bars, 22.2mm clamp diameter) found on early Specialized MTBs. Nicer than the Sakae version; same concept, though.

Slideways - 02/12/13 - 9:19am

Anti-wheelie stem…

Zach Overholt - 02/12/13 - 12:56pm

Answer: S R Slingshot stem

Campy Seat post - 02/12/13 - 4:55pm

Campy seatpost is campy seatpost.

double G - 02/14/13 - 12:46am

I seem to recall Suntour doing a stem like that in the mid to late 80’s
