One piece bar and stems were de-rigeur in the early 90s. Let's see what you've got stashed away then....

Here are a few I've dug out from the web

Orange combo

(imagination needed here..)

Picture: 91 Vintage 90deg 135mm Orange stalk with expander wedge, welded to a 3deg straight bar, all finished in matt black. White Orange sticker on side of stem, with orange O highlighted in orange.


Whats that about picture and thousand words? :)

Here are a couple samples from Grove...

the hammerhead was an aircraft 4130 combo that used .035 tubing with custom bends at the hands to ease wrist strain

the hothead was an aircraft 4130 combo that used .028 heat treated tubing, also with the custom bends.

Both models used a unique internal expander that wedged inside the stem and steerer tube so there were no outside pinch bolts to knock your knees on.

I do have that one on my Century bike, it is a Cool item. It also compensates a bit for the harsh frame and fork :)

Mine is painted black and is saying ' a composite Trimble ROO handlebar' on the top
