They are nicely made stems. The Ritchey stem is Nitto made, as was the Specialized stem on my S-works for example. Not very expresssive, but neat.

The Tioga Mountaineer is Nitto made too.

I know I'm going to cop it here, but it's a question I've always needed to ask.. What/Who is Nitto? :oops:

A Japanese company that made parts ...and maybe also some frames, but I am not sure on that.

Do not know whether they (same Nitto) are still in business , but I sometimes I see new Nitto bars offered. Especially for the ss and touring market.
