Cross ovalized Ti stems are much stiffer ;) I had a 150mm one custom made by the Ti fabricator at McLaren F1 bitd. Total work of art, but since sold. It felt as stiff as steel and i lived in the free weights room back then.


Carumba - you went to McLaren for obtain a Ti Stem!? That deserves to be in a show-case in it's own right. I wonder if they would built a custom Ti fork! Do you have a photo if it?

Love this, beautiful looking frame.

I'm close to having all the bits bought for my Marin team ti so will be giving the frame some attention soon. Was going to use scotchbrite what does the lemon juice do?


Thank you. It's in almost new condition which makes me wonder if it ever had the ti noodle fitted in the first case. Since some of the Hei Hei's were raced without them being fitted, it's possible this one never had one installed. Hard to imagine someone cutting it for a V-brake now.

Lemon juice is just like a citrus cleaner or degreaser. But with some added freshness :D

..The other possibility would be an original Impact headset but with a weight penalty. Decisions desisions! 8)
