never heard of Footwork .


It really differs from a Zooka and it does exactly look like a Footwork/ALPA.

Also see the stem on my Rafty.

Footwork/ALPA stems are heavier, but also more durable than -in particular older- Zookas. Initially they were sold under the ALPA Tec name, but later they were added to the Footwork line up. Footwork carried more machined parts. Made in Holland.


I think you might be right , I will have to check when my Ringle arrives .

Thanks for the info .

I have just received my Ringle stem and it is quite different from the one I have at the moment .

So I think that Melvin was right and it is a Footwork rather than a Ringle .
It is a lot heavier and has a different finish .

I am gonna sell it anyway as it is not needed anymore .

I think you need a little more blue, how about some blue rims :)
Nice ride, TF the buggers didn't manage to make of with it but I'd be careful they don't come back having checked it out last time.
