WHY MAKE THIS PART?

Tree Tribe member Timmy Theus wanted a wedge cut topload stem made according to his specifications.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THIS PART?

With Timmy’s explicit direction on the geometry and look, I drew his signature stem.

This stem is an in-between stem that is made for riders who want to have the topload stem but don’t need it to be as high as the canopy stem.

I designed this stem on 3D software using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to test the strength before it even goes to prototype.

Instead of machined externally, the stem is internally machined to remove all unnecessary material. This creates a stronger stem.

Material was left in the stem at the most important location for a topload stem. And that is between the handlebar clamp bolts. I’ve seen too many toploads stems break clean off because too much material was taken away from this area.

All six bolts are heatreated steel with ED black finish and are not hollow for strength.

The stem is smooth and radiused on all sides for a knee friendly and elegant look.

Universal Bar Ends Available Now!

Calling all handlebars! Our brand new Universal Bar Ends are available now! These are designed to work with just about any bar you can think of as these dont use the threaded system of our Thread-In Bar Ends but instead use a quill wedge mechanism to securely fasten to your bars. Made from 6061 aluminum to keep the weight down and the head diameter sized to be that of the same diameter of your grips which helps keep out the dirt and crud that builds under your grip. Only weighing 2.7oz and using a 6mm allen wrench bolt makes installation and removal a breeze. Plus for anyone rocking a Tree Headset Cap Bolt, these are machined the exact same so it makes for a perfect match! Available in Black, Blue, Gold, Red, Silver and limited color ways, plus with no sharp edges make these the perfect new or replacement bar ends you'll ever need! You can snag a pair of these thru your local shop, favorite mailorder, or directly from our web store!

SPECS

  • 6061 T6 Aluminum
  • Uses quill wedge mechanism to securely fasten to your bars
  • 6mm Allen wrench hole
  • Head diameter is the same diameter as the grip

COLORS

  • Black, Blue, Red, Gold, or Silver

WEIGHT

  • 2.7oz/ 76g

REASON FOR MAKING IT

To offer a long lasting alternative to disposable plastic barends.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THIS PART?

It’s built with no sharp edges to keep impacts to your hands to a minimum.

Quill wedge mechanism makes for safe barends that stay put.

The heads of the barends are machined the same as the Tree headset cap so both bolts match.

The outside diameter of the barends match the grips diameter, this reduces the amount of dirt that can get under the grips if you cut off the bump on the end of the grip.

The barend uses a common 6mm Allen key tool.

Testing the Waters: Okan Forks with Removable Brake Mounts

We recently got a few sample pairs of our Okan Forks in that have Removable Front Brake Mounts. These were made for the rider who wanted to try out front brakes but didn't want to fully commit to owning a pair of forks with 990 mounts welded on. So with these we gave you the option of taking them off in case front brakes just aren't for you. These forks are the exact same as our 25mm offset Okan forks just with the added bonus of removable brake mounts. We have a very limited supply of these available to see whether or not they will go into production. Available in Black or Woodgrain! So get them while they last as they are only available thru our webstore which you can check out right HERE!

Steerer Tube Length: 165mm
Bearing Race: Integrated

Compression Bolt: 24x1.5mm

Removable brake mounts

SIZES

25mm Offset with removable brake mounts

COLORS

Black

WEIGHT

898g/32oz 25mm Dropouts with removable brake mounts

WHY MAKE THIS PART?

I wanted to make an elegant looking fork with small diameter tubing that was strong.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THIS PART?

The steerer tube uses an H24 (24mm) Tree Headset Cap. I have found that forks with a 25mm compression bolt have a higher risk of snapping off the headtube.

The steerer tube is machined with radiuses instead of angle cuts to prevent stress cracks in the material.

The legs are made of Triple butted 4130 Chromoly for the highest strength to weight ratio.

And the dropouts are large enough to accommodate for larger diameter plastic pegs.

The brake mounts are removable for those who want to run front brakes but dont want to commit to buying front brake specific forks so with this you kind of get the best of both worlds.
