@majklnajt

the computer is Cateye Strada Wireless.

btw, i received the Colnago - ITM stem in 100mm, unfortunately i can't get it to fix on the 1 1/8in steerer :x

the Colnago - ITM stem is NOS, with 4 pcs bolt on the stem face.
im surprised since the stem is said to be compatible with 1 1/8in (minus the spacer)..
manufacturing tolerence issue?

the stem steerer diameter is larger than 1 1/8in (very weird), with approx 1-2mm remaining even after fully tightening the 2pcs steerer bolts. it simply can't get hold on the steerer tube at all :cry:

@majklnajt

just found out apparently the Colnago - ITM stem is only meant for 1inch steerer and not the 1.125 inch
looks like i will have to give the stem a pass unfortunately :(

cheers!

My friend has an ITM Visia stem, 120 mm long. With carbon faceplate.
I thought you could maybe paint it... But it isnt horizontal as the top tube, slightly upwards. Still dont know about those angles... ;)

with the lower stack height of the SLR, the top of seatcollar to saddle rails is currently 125mm
