I have this on an early 90's Allez with a quill threadless stem adapter. It works fine as designed and built and worth the 5-stars. But two issues arose due to me not considering the design carefully enough for my needs.
First, I'd like to clamp it flush with the steerer nut but the threadless stem adapter tapers right where the clamp bolt is so the clamp can not get purchase. It is necessary to mount the stem a bit higher above the taper. I wanted a tall stack after all so this extra height poses no real problem.
Second, this is really meant for a true threadless steerer tube. On the adapter there is of course no pretension cap so the top of the stem remains open. On the plus side, that gives me a little pocket in the stem arm to stash small things. But, it would be nice to find some shiny metal cap that would plug up where normally the pretension cap goes in order to hide my stash and keep dust out.
Sexy, sexy, sexy in a world of 31.8 steer tubes
These stems are so good that I got another. Been waiting for ever for them to be back in stock so after I rode the first one I had to get a second
Works as it should and looks good too!
Very classy stem. Perfect for my new vintage style bike. Very good price and even better shipping time. 100% recommended
