After seeing rbonif's recent purchase, the red ControlTech 130mm with 5 degree rise stem, that reminded me of the hideous KORE stem on my A2L and how much I hate it! So, to remedy the situation I made an offer on a gold Tioga stem. The Ebay seller called it a ControlTech stem but he was wrong (notice the handlebar clamp difference), he wanted $40.00 with an additional $6.00 for shipping. I offered $24.00 and the seller accepted... $30.00 on a used stem is more than my typical comfort zone. However, It is just the right gold, so much so that I believe it'll be a perfect match for the gold anodizing on the White Brothers fork. I wasn't motivated purely by aesthetics, the 130mm length with zero degree rise is perfect for the A2L's geometry. Also, I picked up the matching NOS Tioga bar and post, I really wanted to keep with the Tioga for my aftermarket components.

Finally!!!

I love color coordination. I guess because I am stuck in the 80's.

grats...I actually saw that and thought of you right before you posted. I thought $40 was a bit high but glad you were able to get him down.

All this bashing on your KORE stem I am tempted to replace mine with this Nuke Proof on EBAY- Around $50 with shipping almost cost more than the bike itself.

Jesus! Nice gams... just a bit of leg showin' with those Daisey Duke shorts! Were you going to dance class or to run a marathon when you jumped off the kit? I don't recall high cut tight shorts being the thing but the photo proves it was in fashion.

Love 'ya brotha... even if you had a fuzzullet (fuzzy mullet)!!! :shock:

:lol:
