    Handle bar and stem

    Hey guys I was wanting to get a new handle bar and stem, I was wondering if there would be any compatability issues, or do they just bolt on??


    Thanks
    JJ

    Do your have a separate stem or is it a quill type (found on cheapie mtbs)? If it is a separate stem the swap should be simple, just make sure you pre-load your headset bearings.

    The quick answer is, yes, there are compatibility issues. There are two main types of stems (quill and threadless). For threadless, there are two main steerer clamp sizes and two handlebar clamp sizes. There are probably some oddball sizes as well, so you need to know what you have and what you you are trying to accomplish.

    ok, I guess I have a quill type, so now, all I have to do is measure the diameter to find out which I need.

    thanks guys.
