Hi all, just picked up a stem that looks very like a Cinelli 1A, all
aluminium with allen key fittings. It has a tiny triangle on the clamp with
'MAVIC' in it. Underneath 'Made in France'. Looks very 70's to me. Can
anyone confirm the intro date , please.
Also a GB stem with a tiny red oval - plastic?- with the figure 70 on it in faded gold. This detail is also on the clamp and has several cracks radiating from it. A GB Death stem?! I have seen one like it as original on a bike from the late 60's but not with this inset detail. I guess the '70' figure is a date clue.
