Cinelli A1. Best ever road quill stem in my humble opinion. Stupidly, i don't have one at the minute :) . Also prices keep rising on these so get one sooner rather than later. Your looking at £15 minium.

That'll be the Cinelli 1A then :) I'm not sure about prices rising, they're not rare, I reckon it was the most common stem at the time.

My favourites are the 3ttt 78 and 3ttt Record. The 3ttt pro chrome was welded steel with a strange dull finish.

Cinelli 1A, XA or 101 (rarer) - all superb and super reliable, stiff and sturdy.

If you want a welded steel stem, the plated & polished version of the ITM Eclypse was a class act. Appeared on a lot of early '90s pro bikes in preference to the similar-looking lighter (but presumably whippier) Krystal titanium stem from the same maker. Currently riding them in quill and Ahead formats and no grumbles about either.
