Product Description:

This item for sale is a new-old-stock 3T 2002 Evol quill stem. These Italian made stems are very good quality, as they are forged from an aluminum alloy (AL 6082) and were positioned as one of 3T's "Racing Team Services" quill stems (so manufactured to withstand the stresses and demands of competitive cycling/racing). The gray (anodized) finish is clean and compliments the stem's slightly bulkier/oversized styling (relative to other racing series quill stems we sell from 3T). Some of it's more prominent design features and specs include the following...

  • Body length: 100 mm (measured from a profile view of the stem body as a straight line that extends from the center of the quill to the center of the bar clamp)

  • Body angle: 72 degrees (or said another way...a negative 18 degree rise)

  • Quill length: 75 mm (the distance between the limit line and the top of the quill...inclusive of the dust cover, if applicable)

  • Clamp: 25.8 to 26.0 mm (fairly common sizing for many vintage drop handlebars)

  • Quill diameter: 22.2 mm (common size compatible with most 1" threaded forks)

  • Weight: 265 grams (per our digital postal scale and inclusive of all mounting hardware)

Probably the most notable feature of this particular model is the hinged stem clamp, which is an extremely nice (and convenient) feature, as the hinge will open wide enough to allow for a set of bars to mount with levers, bar tape, etc., already installed. As a result, this hinged clamp design maintains the flexibility and convenience of a detachable face-plate design (similar to the Motus one example). Please do note, however, to take care when removing and installing this plastic/resin cover that conceals the hinge. This cover snaps into place by lining-up small pegs with matching peg holes located around the hinge...and the cover must be removed to achieve the full range of motion of the hinge when swapping out bars.

This stem also has the cylinder-shaped expander with the patented the fit in the steerer tube of the fork should be secure. Overall, this might be our personal favorite of the 3T racing series quill stems (for what it's worth)...and although this model is a little heavier relative to some other 3T models, we believe it to be one of the stiffest quill stems on the market.

All of our 3T offerings are in new and unused condition (unless otherwise noted) and this particular stem is new and in it's original retail box. Although, this particular offering has been pulled from our first quality stocks, because we noted more visible shopwear (scuffs and scratches) and some factory finishing blemishes.  The former are best illustrated in the 3rd picture as scratches on the top of the stem body towards the clamp area.  The latter are best illustrated in the 2nd to last picture as a discoloration of the anodized finish around the quill bolt.  I would consider all these blemishes as cosmetic only, but we still consider them significant enough to categorize this stem as a second quality offering, which also explains the modest discount from our regular stocks.

Note to international customers regarding shipping...
We apologize to those that feel some of our international shipping charges are too high. We only charge actual shipping rates, but once an order exceeds a certain amount, we hesitate to use the least expensive US Postal Services First Class International service. We feel this way, because this service is not trackable or more risk of loss. We prefer the US Postal Services Priority Mail International service for more expensive orders, because this service is trackable at and less risk of loss. Unfortunately, this service is more expensive, especially for smaller/lighter packages, relative to the First Class International service. We are sorry about these higher shipping costs, but hopefully our notes help to explain why this is the case.

Note to international customers regarding customs...
We also apologize to those that feel their country import taxes, duties and brokerage fees are excessive. As a small US business, we are required by customs' laws to declare each order as a retail sale. Additionally, the declared order value must be equal to total store purchases and/or winning auction bids (less any shipping costs, as these are not considered in the declared value). As a result, each customer will be responsible for paying his/her own country taxes, duties and brokerage fees, which will be collected upon delivery. Again, we apologize for these additional costs, but we cannot afford the penalties and fines that come with breaking customs' we have to strictly abide by them.
