So I ran into a problem when I started looking for a 1 1/8" threadless Track/Pista steep angled stem. I couldn't find one. The only stem I found was the butt-ugly Deda Pista stem. My track bike has an Ox Blood Red/Bone White with chrome parts color scheme. So I asked David Wilson from David Wilson Industries (yes, D.W.I.) to make a custom threadless stem that is angled at the traditional 58 degree Pista (track) racing angle. WOW the stem is beautiful. I want to get it chrome plated but, chrome plating can cost upwards of $175 around Seattle. So if anyone you know chrome plates or wants to share the $115 setup fee I am game!! I won't be riding this stem on the track until next season anyways!!!
(I recieved a really good idea from The Old Bag, she suggested that I have the stem painted or powder coated bone white to match the frame??? I think it would look pretty hot?? What do you think, leave a comment?)
