Ahoy !

I am still trying to resolve the stem problem.

1) Wanted: Alloy stem, mid-70's to end of time line so that it looks "right" on a lugged, steel Bianchi road frame.  Clamp = 26.0. Extension = 7mm as measured the Cinelli way (that is: along top of extension from center of expander bolt to center of clamp).

2) Does anyone know what NItto extension spec. is the equivalent of Cineli 70mm extension? I ask because the collective wisdom of the CR List suggests that NItto measures stems in a manner different than Cinelli; Ergo: not "apples to apples".

Thank you.
