Hi all. I'm looking to run a regular ahead stem on my look 695..couple of quick questions.

Has anyone else done this successfully. The steerer tube has 2 flat sides but a regular stem seems to fit ok.. Did you need to put in an expanded plug, if not what did you use for a top cap,
thanks!

it is doable without issues (i remember justin - look usa - answering this on RBR forums).

regarding the expander - i think it's not needed - but better contact look to validate.

You can buy a tune gum gum compression plug and cut the rubber and grind the aluminum base a bit to make it fit the steer tube.
