Bicycle Mechanics - Stem Shim
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
I have an old Ross frame with an .833"(21.15mm) steerer and a 7/8"(22.2mm) headset. The stem is .821"(20.90mm). So the stem is just slightly too small for the headset. The problem is that the stem will squeak unless the quill is lowered all the way down to the headset (where there's a lip). So I was wondering if anyone knows of a stem shim available to solve my problem. Or perhaps another solution to my problem.
