    Mystery Stems

    Just picked these up today and wondering if anyone knew who made them.
    Are they overseas or domestic?
    They seem fillet brazed.
    Thanks.

    The chrome one looks like a Tioga Avenger or a HL stem.

    First one is a Mantis stem and should clamp a 7/8" bar with no shim.

    Thanks DC!
    May I pick your brain about the mantis as I know you have/had one?
    I will PM you if that is okay.
    Cheers,

    Yep, Mantis on the chrome one. I have a Mantis frame that could put that one to use if interested in getting rid of it. Here's a pic of one on my XCR:
