Recommended Posts

I went digging through the '83 - '84 mags. The 1983 Pro Neck advert didn't mention a PN II and the photo was too small to make out the stamping. Pretty sure I noticed a bike review listing a Pro Neck II stem in a 1984 mag.

What is the actual difference (or differences) between a Pro Neck and a Pro Neck II stem?

Wondering the same thing... they looked the same.

1983 Pro Neck ad. No mention of a Pro Neck II

Mid 1984 new Pro Neck ad. You can see the "Pro Neck II" on the stem, but no information.

bumping this in case any of you scholars can refine it.  Still looks like mid-84 is about the release date based on info here but there is a general lack of info to be sure.

 

Photos and magazine ads are helpful (please host them here for free)

The September Steady Pedaler ad had a Pro Neck, but did not distinguish as "II"... that seems to start in October.
