Subject: [CR]WTT: De Rosa milled 3ttt stem for same

In my ongoing effort to get the right stems for a couple of projects, I'm looking for a 9-10cm 3ttt Record stem with De Rosa millings on it (9-9.5cm preferred); in trade, I have a mid-70s 3ttt Record stem in an 11cm extension with *De Rosa* milled on the sides of the extension, and the De Rosa heart milled in the front of the clamp area, with the De Rosa *D* in the middle of the heart. If you're familiar with these, you know what this is. If not, I can send pics to anyone with the right trade item. I'm looking for a 9-10cm stem exactly like the one I have, or the earlier 3ttt Record style stem with De Rosa millings would be fine also. I don't know if De Rosa ever had Cinelli stems milled out in this fashion, but I'd consider a Cinelli 1A milled in this style, as well.

Extension is measured from the center of the quill-bolt to the center of the clamp area, along the top of the extension.

If you have the right thing to trade, let me know.
