NOS Dean / McMahon (?) Titanium Quill Stem: 1 1/8" x 150mm x 25.4mm x Zero Rise - Vintage 1990's - Joint Stash Under Top Cap
This gorgeous titanium quill stem's true identity remains a mystery. It looks very similar to DEAN Cycles stems with only subtle differences (namely the bar clamp bolt is situated parallel to the extension on Dean labeled stems). It also has similarities to the McMahon quill. There are no decals or markings. The unique feature of this stem is it's half-length quill bolt. The bolt head you see at the top of the quill is actually just a well made alloy top cap. The quill bolt itself only goes half way up the quill. This increases stem strength and decreases weight. More over, under the top cap is a marvelous space to store your mid-ride joint. Or a few dollar bills and tube patches.
It's welds are nothing short of beautiful. The finish is a bead blasted titanium. Smart steel clamp bolt to avoid ti to ti thread issues.
New old stock, never installed. No shop wear.
