How to adjust inclination on Colnago/ITM Ergo-Light stem???(5 posts)

How to adjust inclination on Colnago/ITM Ergo-Light stem???kapalua

I've heard that you rotate the (metallic) sleeve around the fork's carbon steerer to adjust the stem inclination angle. However, the sleeve looks rather uniform and it doesn't look like rotating it will do anything. Can you please shed some light on this?

Thanks!

Lenn,

If you take the sleeve out and look at it, you should be able to see that the sides of the "hole" in the middle for your steerer are not parallel with the outer wall of the sleeve. If you rotate the sleeve 180 you'll get a different inclination. At least that's the way mine works. I'm not sure if there are any issues with rotating to positions between 0 and 180 to achieve inclinations between the min and max.

Good Luck,
Bryan
Thanks B2! Will try tonight.kapalua

Unless you want the bars to set higher on the right or left side, the bushing can only be used in two positions.

I have two types of sleeves/adapters--one is a silver, con-
centric sleeve, and the other is a black, eccentric sleeve.
This is the one that gives you a choice of angles for the
stem. I've had problems with the eccentric sleeve becoming
loose--eventually I used the uniform sleeve and flipped the
stem over--the Colnago logo is upside down, but so what? I'm
more comfortable.
