|3TTT Forgie stem MTB compatible?||Lemonhead|
Aug 22, 2001 9:42 AM
I just purchased a Specialized Allez Comp and had since replaced the 3TTT Forgie stem that came on it with a shorter ITM Millenium. I was thinking about putting the Forgie on my mountain bike since I need a lower rise. Can someone please tell me whether or not the Forgie is compatible with a MTB bar and also if it is strong enough for MTB use?

|The stem will clamp onto the steerer tube, but the bar diameter are different on road and mountian bikes. MTBs use a 25.4mm bar, and the Forgie is 25.8mm. The only way would be to shim the bar with an aluminum can to increase to MTB bar diameter.|| |
