No, the Ti stem was not intended for the final build, it was put on for show in the frame only pic as I already had the Fizik set up here for when it arrived.

fizik is a very nice looking stem too. very appropriate for the bixxis

I actually bring those stems into the US. So they would've been fine as I have more and other sizes. But If I remember correctly, that was the correct size for the ti frame. But it really was just for looks in the pictures.

Those sibling bikes look great.

The titanium stems are way to chunky for those bikes. They would take away from them.

The stem on the celeste/purple frame, that stem looks great on there. It's shaped like a Zipp carbon or Enve. Compared to a regular welded on, yes, that wouldn't look right. But the forged one looks excellent.

Zip & Enve stems are also to chunky for me. Both have great shape. Just to chunky. I like stems to be smaller than the top and down tube. If not it draws my eye off the frame to the stem.

The forged stem is really cool. I think they would look good on a 44 headtube bike with large diameter tube frame.

This is amazing. A Gewiss Ballan replica Pathos!!! I still have a 1994 De Rosa Titanio. This is off the charts.
