ALPS stem

I heard that the owner of the ALPS brand
stopped making bikes altogether
because he was sick of them being bought by collectors
and hung on the wall.

almost as bad as them being transported
by car
to where they get ridden

very short stem made by Nitto for ALPS
replaced the dirt drop I had on it previously

these kinds on stems don't allow a decaleur
see below
to be bolted through the pinch bolt of the stem
as a normal quill stem will.

click and click again on the top pic
to see those sawtooth extraction marks on the bars
in all their glory
