Any 1" quill stems with 31.8 clamp?

This may not even exist -- yet -- but does anyone know if any manufacturer offers such a creature? I have an old Raleigh tourer with 1" threaded headset, but the bars I would really like to use are 31.8.

I am already aware of the available adapters that fit a 1" threaded and allow a 1-1/8 or 1-1/4 threadless stem to be mounted, but that seems like an awful lot of excess hardware, and I would prefer to use just a quill stem that has the larger clamp -- if there is such a thing.

Thanks.

Here's one you might like that even has an adjustable rise:

Might have to hunt around a while to find one or you could probably order it from LBS.
All in all though, the threadless adapter sounds like a better idea to me.

Woohoo -- exactly what I was looking for! I guess I was hoping for something a little more elegant than Kalloy, but I'm just happy to find something. I wouldn't be surprised if by next season, there are several other choices on the market -- even though the 1" threaded headset standard is fading away, there are still plenty of bikes out there, and the popularity of the 31.8 bar is on the rise.

I've tried the adapter, and it just doesn't look right for aesthetic reasons -- the old '80's vintage Raleigh tourer I have is old school, with all the polished aluminum components for that era, so I've tried the adapter with a threadless stem, and it just looks goofy.

Now that is one weird creature... Worth it just for the "What the ...?" factor.

Quill adaptor and new stem will solve your issue.

Where to buy Kalloy AL-820?

I could also use this stem for my Guerciotti. I could not find a vendor online that carried it (within the U.S.). Does anyone have any idea where I can buy one? Do I have to order it from QBP via my LBS? Thanks!

Probably won't work. That thing is for a 1-1/8" steerer and the OP has a 1" steerer.

Thanks for the ideas

I orig. took a look at the stem adaptors - they are all super heavy! Like a bolt from the titanic. The Kalloy AL-820 is a great deal lighter than the stem and adaptor. Unfort. it is still not avail. in USA. I will keep checking. thanks again everyone

I was going to say the same thing because the picture was of a 25.4mm steerer and not a 22.2mm steerer that the OP needs however the specs are noncommittal. It MAY be available in the combination that the OP wants but then again it may not.

If $40 for a stem-adapter - 1" to 1 1/8" - is too pricey, I suggest the one from Profile Design. I have one on my Vintage PUCH. It's excellent:

You can fit any modern 1 1/8th inch stem on them, and 31.8mm handlebars from there. I did.

Pretty funny to be worrying about weight on a threaded system. Be realistic people, seriously.

I found this on the web, from a store in PA, Bikyle. They make custom chro moly stems in any combo you want, including quill to 31.8 mm, and will paint it too. Looks like a great solution. I will probably order one to bring my 1991 Simoncinni back to life with a new handlebar.

I do not understand how you add spacers to these adapters? Don't you need a longer adapter to hold the spacer?

There are modern ergonomic drop bars with 25.4 clamp diameters to consider.
