Reynolds Ouzo Pro Carbon steerer and TTT Forgie stem(7 posts)

The reynolds instructions with the fork says that the bolts should be on the back of the stem not from the side. The Forgie has that configuration however there is only one bolt instead of two. Is this going to work or not? BTW I have the limit of spacers (an inch and a half as per Reynolds) and a 110mm stem. Thanks for the responses!

Mine works great. Same set up with 25mm of spacers. I asked the same question and someone on this board e-mailed reynolds and they said it was fine. I asked my lbs and they said they have seen the combo work fine as well. Fwiw my stem is 100.

... I emailed Reynolds specifically about the Forgie and the steerer on my Ouzo Pro Aero... they ok'd it.

We abide.

Remain In Light.
Yep, me too...dsc

My friend has a Ouzo pro, and he said 11/8 stack of spacers for an 1/18 steerer. But, I've read (can't remember where), that you shouldn't use that kind of stem. Yet I've seen pictures in Colorado Cyclist using that stem on what seems to be carbon steerers. Check the mag if you have one. I use a Ritchey two bolt stem on my carbon steerer with no problem. I just don't tighten it as much as I would on an alloy steerer.

I have that stem (120mm) and fork on my bike and have not had any problems.
Good to know, just don't over tightened it. (nm)Paul
