Is it on offer?
But re: the stem notion: On that bike (above), it is really unnecessary since they are not using Cantilever brakes.
The cable-through-stem concept is for cantilever brakes specifically, where the cable connects with the brake system vertically center.

KWalker is correct (as usual.) The fork, brakes, stem, and bars are all moving on the same plane so the braking should work well. As far as I know, this is the only stem set up this way. Anyone know if this has been done before?
I know dozens of cross racers that drill out the center of the stem and run the cable through, but they don't have the integrated ferrule holder that you do.
KWalker wrote:Yah I was wondering about that as well, but you have to realize that when the bars move the fork also moves as well so the tension in the cable doesn't change. It would only change if one moved and the other didn't
Doh with hindsight I have no idea why I made that comment!
Super clean, the top bearing cover for the headset is even integrate to the base of the stem.
Though it'd be nice to see a few more fork mounted stops on CX bikes.
