Robot 35mm Stem

Robot Short Stem

For ages we’ve had the idea of a wide clamp area 35mm reach mtb stem. Never liking clamp bolts to the rear of the stem and looking for clean lines this is a mid clamp.

What is a mid clamp?

A mid clamp clamps the steerer in front of the steerer instead of behind, so just make sure you clamp the steerer before the bars are tight.

The robot is wide, probably the widest on the market coming in at 65mm, this means you need a clamp area on your bars of at least 65mm wide.

CNC machining is what we live for, tool marks have purposely been left giving it an industrial feel an texture and reminds us why we love doing what we do.

What is it made from?

Each robot is machined from a block of 7075-T6 aluminium alloy – this is the good stuff

A word on testing

The stem has passed ISO testing to BS EN ISO 4210-2:2015, these tests were carried out by a UK company.

Bar Size and Reach

The stem is a 35mm reach for 31.8 bars, we will in future make a version for 35mm dia bars.

Lets talk bolts

So a fine stem requires fine bolts so therefore Robot comes as standard with grade 5 titanium bolts – and yes they are made in the UK, so that’s good.

Production

Do you want one ? Production is being planned now, tooling is underway and the first production run will start soon.

Rideworks new EBB

EBB Rideworks release their – Eccentric Bottom Bracket

Are you looking for a state of the art bottom bracket, Ridework’s have just released their new revolutionary EBB (Eccentric Bottom Bracket). it might just be what you’re looking for.

Produced at our manufacturing facility in the UK,  the BB is CNC machined from aircraft spec 7075-T6 aluminium.

This EBB has a unique design means that we have zero play between the cups, this reduces risk of premature bearing wear.

The unit requires no separate bottom bracket, it has integrated angular contact bearings for side loading and features 8.5mm of throw allowing you to tension your chain or belt drive single speed bike.

As we all know the weather plays a very important part in how long bearings last. Sealing is important, therefore manufacture our own seals in house to fit perfectly.

The EBB is easy to fit

The EBB is easy to fit, lightly grease the bolt posts and heads of the non-driverside half.

Apply grease to the alignment pins and the body of both cups. Slide the two halves of the EBB into the frame shell. Aligning and sliding the pins into their corresponding holes.

You can adjusted the tension by hand or by using a standard 52mm C spanner. Rotating the eccentric bottom bracket cups to find the required tension.

Always UK Made

Rideworks is a UK company that designs and manufactures bike parts in the UK, We pride ourselves in the precision and quality of our parts.
