My 1990 ride.

Where can I purchase an old fashion goose neck for my 1990 Cannondale? Old fashion but yet light weight aluminum?

There are lots of sources for nice quill-stems for your bike. Here is but one of the sources.

If you think that's funny, wait 'till he comes back asking where to get a "seatpost". It might embarrass us.

Why do so many people call a quill stem a gooseneck? Not too many geese I've seen have a neck like that.

Do you already have specific handlebars ?? If so, make sure you get a compatible stem. They are not all the same diameter.
