it fits. The picture of one that was cracked thats been running around online is because the dude was tricking with it. Thomson isn't even known for making track parts, they're meant for guys who ride MTB.

and julian, no. thats way too much for a deep-v/formula set. unless its new it shouldn't go for more than 150. If its new and some one is building it for you, then its not that bad.


i haven't seen a picture of it but a dude told me that his faceplate cracked after using it for a year (26.0 in 25.4 stem). it'll fit, but it's still not gonna fit perfectly unless you ream out the other side of the stem to 26.0.

i don't know what track parts has to do with anything, but many track racers use thomson stems on their bikes because of how stiff they are.

Can you remove handlebar tape and put it on a another bike?
Jan 16, 2010 @ 22:04
nah.
Jan 17, 2010 @ 16:04
depends on the tape. fizik has adhesive on the back, but some stuff is reusable.

I dont like the seating position of my bike, I would like to sit more upright. I like holding the bars up higher instead of in the crouched down position. Will getting flat bars help that out at all?
Jan 18, 2010 @ 10:03
um not really, track bikes are meant to be rode like that so youd have to slam seat and get fatty risers?

if you're looking to do a conversion, stop looking at mountain bikes and start looking for horizontal dropout road frames. most have vertical dropouts and make fugly ass conversions.



^ i can't imagine this as a fixed
