Dragged the Prestige out again today, what a ride. The bike just seems to lap everything up !

Worth every penny and every minute spent on it !

You're right, those Prestige frames are pure class :)

Looks like it was a good (if cold) ride, a bit of snow always makes for some comedy moments :lol:

Anyone know what the standard fit bar stem would have been for the 1993 Orange Prestige ?

If not what would be correct for the year.

Thanks

Stalk/stalk lite stem with ramrod/hotrod bars probably.
Catalogue is on the archive.

To much choice for period stems and bars ;-)

I have the 150mm Tioga T-Bone Prestige fitted but I get neck ache after about ten minutes of riding hehe.

The bike had a shorter T-Bone with a higher rise when I bought it, unfortunately I sold the stem soon after the purchase DOH !

I need something like a 130mm with a higher rise. Less of an extreme XC style.

Can't find the 1993 catalogue for the life of me.......

Zoom crop up on eBay and are nice good stems.

I used to get neck ache on mine after i started riding again, but after a while riding them it went away, guess the muscles got used to it.

Orange archive is here, http://www.retrobike.co.uk/gallery2/v/M ... e+Archive/

Use, Syncros, Attack and probably, control tech are all common stems/bars in the higher ranges. Only the control tech would look right in my opinion.

That was me who bought the stem from you (I am using it unfortunately!), what you want is this :

Shame about the price though

Cheers

Haha, I had a vague memory of my selling it to an RB guy :-) Should have kept it ;-)

I fitted a Control Tech stem to my Prestige in '94, they were quite a popular mod at the time.

Do you happen to know what diameter seatpost these frames take? Would quite like to find a Lite Stik for mine.
