    Fixed Gear Bike Component

    We recently completed a set of fixed gear bicycle stems for a local HB manufacturer.  If you've never seen fixed gear bikes, they're quite the ride. No brakes, no gears. It's a direct drive systems, so if the wheels are moving, the pedals are moving. Riders stop by leaning forward and locking out their legs thereby forcing the rear wheell to stop spinning. Stems were CNC machined from billet AL6061. Features are on 4 sides, including a full radius at each end. Radius of 0.043" on all edges. Company name engraved on the side. Since the run was fairly small, we created a fixture to hold 8 blocks of aluminum at a time. The stems were then given a brushed surface finish and Type II black anodize.
