Merlin bar/stem. I seem to remember that near the end of the original Merlin cycles one of the original owners started working with anodizing Ti…hmmm.

It’s a Titus TI bar stem combo, had several made back in the 90’s

Actually it’s a One-Off titanium handlebar/stem combo. The swirl in the middle of the stem gives it away. 🙂

Gary Helfrich (sp?) was at Merlin and did help start it, but then spun off.

One-Off Titanium! Anodized logo by Leni Fried is a giveaway. Mike Augspurger is the One-Off wizard behind this bar-stem combo. He always set the gnarliest trials courses at Mount Snow. http://www.oneoffhandcycle.com/

C’mon, where’s the a**hat who says it’s a Campy seatpost?

That looks like a Mike Augspurger and Leni Fried collaboration. Mike (now One Off Titanium) was one of the original Merlin guys and Leni specializes in crazy paint and anodizing.

It is a One-Off Titanium bar-stem-combo made by Mike Augspurger. He was one of the founders of Merlin, then started One-Off Titanium. The anodizing was made by Leni Fried.

1990s Campy MTB headset bearing rotation tool. It looks like its missing that damn spacer that costs 45 bucks.

Hey Arse Hat, that is obviously a Campy first edition quick release skewer. Seatpost? You are one ignorant bike lover.

It’s a little difficult to tell, because several of us made Ti bar stem combos, but the top cap and bolt look a lot like the ones from my original Titus Titanium bar/stem combos. I actually began producing these before my first ever titanium frame in 1989. Chris Cocalis

Chris – I had one of yours built for my fisher prometheus ti frame back around ’92… it does look just like the titus to me.

I agree with most that it is a handlebar and stem. You can even see where the grips where on the handlebar…
