Lorenzo H. "Ronnie" ThomsonĀ opened up his first aerospace machine shop in 1968, and by the time his company began making bicycle components in the mid-1990s, Ronnie pretty much knew what he was doing. The stems and seatposts that bear his name quickly became legend. Offered in simple silver or black anodized colors, the lightweight, high-quality components have established cult status among cyclists, many of whom are lining up to purchase the company's latest, long-awaited product, titanium handlebars, which are going on sale for the first time this fall.
