Cook Bros Racing VGS Dogbone Quill Stem: 1 1/8" x 135mm x 0 Rise - RARE 1990s (Near Mint LOW Miles)
One of the true holy grails of the early 1990's retro mtb scene! This VGS stem was made only for one year (1992), and in very low numbers. If it reminds you of Cook Brother's cranksets, that's because it borrows their ball-end design resulting in that "dog bone" look. It features a titanium quill and bolt with a magnesium wedge and stainless steel pinch bolt. A true work of art deserving of the best show bike, or a luxurious display case in a bike shop/museum. Those abstract looking designs etched into the sides, if you look close enough at the right angle it actually says Cook Bros Racing!
Near mint or better barely used show bike condition! This stem has very minimal cosmetic wear. The only real mark is a ~1cm+ circle of ano wear under the driveside of handlebar clamp. Otherwise it's very close to pristine with just a couple tiny hazy spots in the ano when you look real hard. The inside of the bar clamp shows almost no wear to the anodizing. Bolt heads are pristine, quill and wedge are super clean.
