how do I tell what size quill stem I have?
I need to figure out both the size of the part that goes into the headtube, so that I buy the correct replacement. Do I measure the diameter or just lay it on a ruler and measure the width of the tube?
And I need to know how to figure out how to measure the rise of the part that clamps onto the handle bars.
I need to get a longer stem that what I have, by about an inch or so.
Thank you for your help. I hope this makes sense.
ps this is on a 1984 Trek 720 tour bike.
