Quill Stem with Removable Faceplate
Now, there is no limit to the cockpit setup for your classic roadie, tourer, mtb, or any other bike with a 1" threaded steerer. These stems feature a simple 2-bolt removable faceplate for use with any and all handlebars including modern bars with 31.8mm clamp diameters and "alt-bars" such as our Crazy Bar. The 90 degree extension makes for a bit of rise without looking out of place on a custom build. Available in three cool finishes!
- Clamp: 31.8mm
- Quill Diameter: 22.2mm (for 1" steerer)
- Angle: 0deg
- Height above insert: 130mm
- Weight: 395g (100mm size)
Excelent product with very good fabrication quality fit's like a glove in my vintage trek.
This stem has been almost everything I could have wanted in a stem. It solves a very real problem of trying to get a modern cockpit on an old school machine. It looks so much better than the stem adapter in my opinion.
One thing to note, the 2 bolt design is solid but not enough to keep bars from moving when on mountain bike trails.
This is one of those "why didn't I think of this!" products. With the modern road and mtb handlebar diameters vs old school quill stems... this new kind of stem resolves an issue for those old quills and old frames. I might get a 3rd stem (I have two now) for another project I am putting together. I give this stem 10 thumbs up!
Without going to Nitto this is the best looking 31.8 quill stem on the market and it has enough adjustability to be very functional!
I love this stem and what it did for my old Bridgestone. Original stem was pretty...unattractive, and this opens up a world of handlebar options. The 90 degree is great for a little rise without looking off.
VO even sent me a replacement faceplate at no charge because of a minor cosmetic defect in the nickel plate. Oh and the nickel looks verrrry nice in person.
