The Cigne Stem gets its name from the French word for swan. The shape is inspired by the old gooseneck LD stems by Ibis and Cunningham, but with a few accommodations for modern bike needs. 1 1/8" threadless and 31.8mm handlebar clamp with a removable faceplate. With 145mm of vertical height from the base of the stem to the center of the clamp, it's pretty useful for getting your handlebars up high without using a ton of spacers. Available in High Polish, Nickel, and Noir.
- Handlebar Clamp: 31.8mm
- Steerer Clamp: 1-1/8"
- Height: 145mm (base to center of clamp)
- Weight: 343g (90mm size)
The Cigne functions as both your stem and top cap. Your star-nut should be approximately 1cm from the top of your steerer tube and you need at least 55mm of tube (metal only, not for use with carbon steerers). Now slide your stem on the steerer, slip in the long bolt with the washer, pretension with the long bolt, and clamp it down at the base. Use grease as needed.
Note: Not for use with Quill Stem Adaptors.

Absolutely perfect in every way. So much lift and my back is free from soreness. So much style that my cockpit distracts me on long country gravel rides. Perfect for bringing your big bar bags up off the tire too! Love love love it! Thank you VeloORANGE for another rad as hell bike part!
As an admittedly total bike freak, I wanted to build a city bike in the euro tradition on a newer (threadless) platform and the cigne stem is perfect for that aesthetic.
