1981 Cook Bros. Racing
All Cook Bros. Racing parts featuring the Uni-Clamp stem/fork
1981 introduce the Uni-Clamp stem which was years ahead of its time! Instead of a traditional fork with threads the Uni-Clamp fork had a longer steer tube allowing clamping area for the Uni-Clamp. The top headset race is not threaded so the Uni-Clamp is placed onto the fork. Now the lock nut for the headset is threaded onto the fork allowing the adjustment to the headset. Once in place then the Uni-Clamp bolts are tightened onto the fork.
No more snapping stem/wedge bolts, much stronger, set & forget your headset adjustment, no need for a flex fighter, and talk about sano looking!!!
The rest of the bike is all Cook Bros. Racing parts and era correct.
Gary and Craig Cook were crankin' out innovative US made products and appreciate all they did for BMX!
