Stayer Stem

Fabio sends photos of his Cinelli-Milano stayer stem with these comments attached:
"As you know, the classic stayer stem has crest logo, not the oval logo. Also as you said, the classic stayer has the knurling. The oval logo that appears is not the earliest oval logo. The earliest logos say "FIRENZE" instead of "MILANO", or the earliest logo says "C.CINELLI" instead of "CINELLI", or the earliest logos are football-shaped, instead of oval. So, I believe that is a late 50's - early 70's logo. That's the same time that the classic stayer stem was made, so my belief is that this was a custom, or special made stem by Cinelli for a special customer, or for the UVI."

Reminder: I invite you to contribute by sending in photographs of your Cinelli bike, illustrations, personal stories, and articles about Cinelli bikes and components. I can be contacted at
