I’ve enjoyed Velo Orange components over the years. The quill stem hibernated in it velvet bag on a shelf in the garage before emerging for its true purpose: My latest project: a New Albion Microbrew mini-velo. This is a niche product but I’m so great full that VO offers it. If bridges the chasm in cockpits: 1” treaded headsets and 31.8’bars. Removable faceplate opens up a range of bars!
Don’t let the slender looks and 2 bolt face plate fool you this stem is stiff. Helped the Microbrew scoot and cut like a racing go cart.
The Velo Orange quill stem with removable faceplate is the best solution to modernize an older bike and use a 31,8mm handlebar. The angle is perfect for a gravel bike (Litespeed Appalachian) great looking and solid for off road biking ;)
This 31.8mm quill is simply awesome. So much versatility.
A bit tall for small frames but beautiful
Perfect , i like it
