Zoom: Right thing on this bike IMO:
Never had any issue with any of their components. Not posers kit.
The stems are an iconic mark of the '90's to me.
How many of these stems still have their original top caps?
Mine do, although I think one of the bike sites sells suitable replacements.
And for those that are critical, things like stems were reasonably innovative BITD, given what tended to be stock. I used them on a couple of bikes, back then, that had T-Bones on, and from what I remember, the Zoom stems were lighter, even accounting for needing a non-integral hanger. And truth be told, I like the look of the silver brushed finish.
The seatposts looked simple, yet reasonable, weight wise - and for all those with the boutique components, how many have failed / cracked / split, compared with Zoom stems and posts that, for me at least, have yet to fail?
