The 3T Apto Team Stem is the latest alloy road stem offering from 3T, a brand that's been building top-quality components for over 60-years. Apto fittingly means fit in Portuguese, as in something you hope to achieve with the proper stem length and angle, which is only slightly confusing because 3T hails from Italy. Nevertheless, the 6061 alloy constructed Apto stem isn't too radical from previous designs, but it does boast a few refinements creating a lightweight, stiff, and perhaps most importantly, safe stem. The Apto Team stem's faceplate utilizes a design that sees reversed clamping bolts. With the four steel Torx bolts facing toward the rider versus the front of the bike, it not only cleans up the looks, it slightly improves the aerodynamics as well. On the front of that faceplate is a rubberized logo that harkens back to something 3T used on its classic stems. Fork steerer tube clamping is handled by two titanium Torx bolts that grip the steerer tenaciously and prevents any chance of slipping no matter how violently you throw the bike side-to-side in hopes or a new PR. The Apto Team Stem comes in 10mm increments between 70 and 150mm. It clamps to 31. 8mm handlebars and 1-1/8in steerer tube diameters. It's finished in black with red accents.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
