I just bought a used bike for my wife and am trying to get it set up comfortably for her. The bike is a few years old and uses a 1" threaded headset, i.e. quill stem. I need to get the bars a couple inches higher (and slightly closer), and want to use a more modern 1 1/8" stem. I know these exist:
so I know I can put a 1 1/8" stem on her bike using that adapter. What I really want is a slightly longer version so I can also raise the height of the handlebars. It's just a personal aesthetic preference, but I'd rather get that increase in height with an extra inch or two of length from the steerer tube (or adapter as it may be), than from a 45degree riser stem.
So basically I'm looking for a combination riser/threadless adapter. Does it exist? So far all I've found is this:
which at 11" tall, is way TOO tall.
Anyone know of a riser/threadless adapter that could add just a couple inches?
