    Default Does Anyone have a Nitto UI-85ex on their lugged steel bike?

    I'm considering going threadless on my lugged steel CX bike, but want to stay as close as possible to the slim lines. The UI-85ex seems like it might be a good option, but I can't seem to find any good pictures of one on a bike. Preferably a "racey" setup with a 120mm. Can anyone help? Thanks!

    Maybe not the stem you're looking at but here's a pretty picture:

    If you want the stem to match the ‘slim lines’ of the frame, why not go custom?
    I like to have the angle and tube size match my top tubes.
    This one was for a one inch steerer - another benefit: no shim needed.

    This is exactly the visual I needed- mine's a 1" steer too. It looks sharp, I'd say! Thanks!

    That is a beaut! I'm liking the price point of the Nitto better though...

    Nitto CT-81 fillet brazed would look good.

    I swap between the deda superleggera and the nitto ui-25bx on my de rosa. The nitto is a beautifully made stem and around 165gms for a 120mm length. It has a nice slim profile.
