Okay, TriTalkers, fancy helping me help my pal out?
He wants to try a ski-bend extension, but has the old style PX Stealth basebar, with the odd size diameter extensions, so most new ones don’t fit.
Do you lot, or anyone you know, have a set kicking around?
That’s a blast from the past! Hands-up if you DIDN’T own a PX Stealth at some point! Mine was blue, but I never had the PX Carbon wheels, it had Zipps. Did my first two IMs on it (Roth & Austria)
I sold my complete Stealth ‘cockpit’ on German eBay back in 2010 I’m afraid. But a bit of Stealth nostalgia for me!
Yeah - still see LOADS of them at the local TTs.
Also the Exocet II (which I have)
He also has the Exocet II, but looks like the previous owner swapped the base bars before selling it on.
I really liked my Stealth. As I do my Exocet.
Does the job for £400
I think @Adam still has the old Stealth and went past me like a rocket ship at Helvellyn
I’ve got my old Exocet on my turbo… straight bars though.
From 2008. I still have those wheels!
I was a bit more niche, a Dalkiia (which I still have) with PX bars (which I don’t)
Complete with Ergomo PM
I asked them not to fit mine and sold it for £600, making my brand new PX stealth about £800
Love my Stealth. Won’t change it until it breaks.
I have these old bars lying around
They look the same as those is @r0bh pic
Were these always Carbon bikes?
There is man around here I see often with an alloy TT frame set up a a road bike that is matt black and stickered up as a stealth, I always wonder if it is genuine.
IIRC the ski bend PX extensions were a lot rarer than the straight or S-bend ones back in the day
I was a bit of a Stealth addict, had 3 of them, can only find pics of 2 though, first was the original alu/carbon mix version, then my last one was a baby blue one I bought off Tony Poole!
My one and only TT bike is a Stealth. I acquired it with ski-bend extensions but unless I’m being a total numpty, the whole thing (base bar, extensions and risers) is one piece - well, there’s a join between the base bar and the extensions but it isn’t a clamp. The only adjustment is the width of pads on the risers. I assume that’s the original cockpit although I’m not certain. Sorry - that’s about zero help as I don’t imagine your pal wants the whole caboodle.
No, the MkII ones which say have been discontinued
Wish I hadn’t sold it tbh
