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.

Use these 2-piece handlebar shims if you need to reduce from the 31.8mm clamp diameter: 26.0mm and 25.4mm

The Ugly Duckling?

Well, I honestly don’t know what to make of the ascetics of this piece. I mean, it’s kind of weird looking. Some historical context might sway me; you know, some old photos or Shop ads. There’s nothing out there like it, though. And the ride? The ride is so comfortable. What back pain? I may even have it in me to join the local Randonneurs Association!

I like the look and it's nice and shiny

Sexy Curves

Yes, it will make you more comfortable by effectively increasing stack height but,...most importantly,'s sooo sexy looking!
Pics show it on a Velo Orange Neutrino with a Velo Orange polished headset, Dia-Compe/Blue Lug tapered spacer, Deity Crosshair 3mm spacers and a Nitto Cr-mo 50mm polished spacer.

My Head tube felt too short. Not anymore!

I love the Cigne stem. First of all, I wanted a more upright ride and the Cigne saved me from getting an ugly tube extender off of Amazon. Secondly, I already owned the wavy fenders and even though I loved them, I felt like they were a little discordant with my sporty modern bike. Not anymore. The sweep of the Cigne gives my bike a cool, old school, kinda Parisian look. It complements the fenders perfectly.

Comfy upright ride. Looks killer. Thank you Velo Orange!!
