Hi first post here so hello! I have an early 80's 3TTT stem and I managed to get my (purely temporary) ergo bars into - it just took lots and lots of rotating/spinning the bars around. frustrating but no scratches. BTW the real solution would be a top quality traditional bar shape, any ideas? Ive been on the lookout for some 3ttt's but can never find them in the US. Also check out PlanetX in the UK they are selling off NOS 3ttt stock for between $5 and $20 stems as well as a lot of bars. However the shipping is a killer - $43 for a stem. Possibly time for a group buy?
