Very nearly brought them then noticed that it was the ergo version and not the classic as pictured.

Thanks for your help guys I'll keep a look out. Looking at my options Cinelli would be an option too.

Ergo in 3TTT-speak means double-grooved, as in Ergopower. It doesn't refer to an "anatomic" shaped bar if that's what you were thinking.

25.4mm though. Nice stem in 25.4mm other than Shimano?

also, beware that the newly reintroduced Cinelli 64s don't have any grooves....
I also just noticed that Planet-X lists the clamp on the 3TTT as 25.4mm, but that may be a mistake. They should be 26mm (actually, 25.8mm), but always worth checking before ordering, especially from Planet-X. :roll:

oh, another thing to bear in mind, 3TTT measure their bars outside to outside. Not sure whether Planet-X are using 3TTT's measurements or the more common centre to centre. So what 3TTT calls 42cm is a Cinelli 40cm.

Nitto might be worth a punt; they do some fairly niche-market stuff for the track/fixed crowd in odd sizes and the like. Don't always appear to be cheap though.

The Nitto bars you find in the UK don't have double grooves.
(edit: ooops, just realised you were referring to Nitto stems. A shim would be a lot cheaper; Nitto even make a very nice one.)

There are indeed Nitto shims. For complete stems, their Technomic & Dynamic models appear to come in 25.4 format.
