The colours of the name and torque texts are switched. So is one fake? I know other similar components have been faked in the past.

I wouldn't necessarily think so. Go to the extralite site and look in their bargain bin. They have (had) some stems with the printing all mixed round (upside-down logos etc)....all legit stuff. Perhaps this is the same. The company may have sold it off cheap....but this re-seller is picking that you won't notice. I don't care about graphics much, so it wouldn't annoy me unless I'd paid top dollar.

One's on a fork the other appears to be on a table.

Ask Deda. That's the only way to be sure.

hard to tell from the size of the photos but it looks like the stem on the table has stickers for the fine print?

where were the stems purchased?

it may be the photo angle, but the one on the table appears to have a thicker wall around the steerer tube, and the triangular relief shape on the side of the stem looks more rounded. could be optical illusions.

Doesn't matter, they're both too heavy and overpriced.

The one with box bought from a LBS and the other box online.

Is it that one of the stems is dead and is a ghost .
Is one made of Michael Jacksons old nose.

I want to bring back this topic; has anybody heard of Deda fakes on ebay?

For example, I´ve spotted a Deda Zero100 stem in white which is glossy, the original is matte. It has steel screws and not the titanium ones.

Where are the Dedas made actually?
