I just recieved my Syntace bullhorns from Chucks, but the extreme bends wont fit through my stem. So, what are some threaded stems that are front loading? Or should I buy a threadless adapter and use a threadless stem?
have you tried spreading it?
old 90s ITM like I just got a couple months ago will work wonders. check it (http://bikeforums.net/showthread.php?t=191511)

you sure you're using a 26.0 stem? the only time i couldn't get a stem around my 26.0 horns was when i was unwittingly using a 25.4 stem. just so you know.
but yeah, just hold a screwdriver in there and twist, it might take a friend to help though. one to twist and one to put the horns through.
btw, i bought the syntac from chuck's too. been waitin' for a new frame to try them out.
