Nitto Technomic Stem (tall) 22.2mm Quill with 26.0mm Clamp
These are beautiful, Japanese-made forged aluminum stems with an extra tall column (225 mm overall.) Not as flexible as you were when you bought your bike? Want a more upright position without sacrificing the versatility of your drop bars? This is the ticket! These allow you to raise your handlebars about 2 1/2" higher than traditional stems.
These have a standard 22.2 mm (7/8") column which fits standard "one inch" fork steerers.
The 26.0 clamp I.D.fits most modern road handlebars.
Shims are available for handlebars with 25.4mm clamp section.
This stem will save your neck and back.
Traditional road bike frames often don't have the bars high enough for most people. This stem really brings the comfort level up.
The stem is well made where it counts. The expander wedge is very well made. Sometimes old quill stems were known to break at this very critical part.
Nitto quality shows.
You can be assured a more comfortable ride when you raise the bars up. Reduce neck and back pain. There is no need to have a race oriented posture when not riding professionally.
For those who want to have the efficient properties of a road bike and the comfort of a "comfort bike" this stem is needed.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
