I bought the stem from ebay for $35 and came today from post (1 week exactly)

120mm I have, and weight is 114 grams. Came with all titanium bolts, which I am really happy.
For 35 dollars total, my stem is lighter than my old Zipp Service Course SL...

Now I need to remove the paint on the stem, since it does not fit to my new bike built.
Anyone here did that and can recommend me an easy way for it?

Edit: acetone seems the correct answer.

I'm about to pull the trigger on two of these stems (one for my new build, one for my GF's build) and I'm hoping to get two of Tillquist's Garmin mounts to fit this stem.

Can anyone tell me what the center-to-center bolt widths of the faceplate is? :noidea:

I will measure it when I am home, if no one does it meanwhile.

edit:
Outside to Outside of bolts distance is 31mm.
One bolt outside to outside is 7mm.

3.5mm from left and 3.5mm from right so 31-7=24mm is center to center measurement.

Copied from my build thread for completeness:

I had the 100mm Uno (in the thread above). For my new bike, I needed to swap the 100mm stem for a 110mm one so replaced it with a 110mm Kalloy Uno that I weighed at 114g.

Image

Graphics stripped with acetone and with the bolts removed it was 94g.

Image

Swapping the bolts to Ti bought the total weight to 106g.

I can measure for you. Does Tilquist make a mount for these?

I was just about to make a message about the same thing. I have one, but I'm away from it for the next little while. Does anyone know the bolt spacing on the stem?

As ToffieBoi posted-

"Outside to Outside of bolts distance is 31mm.
One bolt outside to outside is 7mm.
3.5mm from left and 3.5mm from right so 31-7=24mm is center to center measurement."

And yes- Tillquist's does make a Garmin mount to fit and it works great. :-)

What size of the ti-bolts are you using for the Uno 7 stem?

Just so everyone knows, BlueSkyCycling in L.A. has the Kalloy UNO ASA-105 on sale at $9.99 for the alloy and $19.99 for the Carbon wrapped. Only in 110mm. Shipping was $5.00 and you just need to swap out the bolts for Ti ones. My 110mm alloy one came out to 122g with the Ti hardware, about 20g lighter than the Ritchey WCS 4-Axis 110mm that I previously had.

I´ve just ordered a 100 mm Uno 7. Am indecisive if I should order ti bolts or not. Will report the weight when it arrives anyway :)

I got the stem in a week and a half. Not bad for free shipping :)
I weighed it and it came out great at 100 mm and 110 grams.

I picked one up for my daughter's road bike (60 mm) and it came in at 89g. Not bad when you consider the 90 mm stem that came with the bike weighed 246g. Never heard of dropping a quarter of a pound by switching stems before!

I just bought a 100 mm Uno 7, shipping was under two weeks.
Weight with stock bolts is 105 g and 94 g after swapping to ti. I'm impressed.
