Direct from the source, our man in Firenze, Matteo Bee himself, I have a TTT black anodized stem with Paganini pantograph work. Appears to be early 80s, and, I can send a PIC to any interested, or that might be able to ID the circa. It is soon to be installed on a champagne 79ish Colnago Super, as part of an all black component project.

Dennis, if you think you might want to trade for this stem in some way (like ... I need a black TTT stem, or something that I can swap for one), then I'll hold off installation to see if you get the bike. I think it's about 110mm in length. Lemme' know...

Ciao, Mark Agree Southfield MI USA
