I'm looking for a stem for my M-Trax.
But I want a classic MTB Ahead stem, either Polished
, but I want made in England, USA, Canada, France, Germany or Italy. No Chinese, Taiwanese or Korean stuff please.
But I can't seem to think of anything, I do like the look of the Pace RC45 and the Ringle Zooka ones also the Syncros Cattlehead (two of my bikes have the polished cattlehead/prod though and now I want something different).
I also like the original RSP 2 bolt Ahead stem which was originally on this bike - or a similar style Stem.
(The RSP one was probably made in Taiwan)
Is there anything retro-ish around I could consider?
I have been trawling the Net - and all the modern Stems I like cost in the region of over $200 +I suppose that's what happens when I want anything but Made in China/Taiwan/Korea/India etc
here's what the bike currently has;
An ART adjustable stem - looks nice I think, but not worthy!!
