Looking for a threadless fork stem for 1 1/4" steerer tube
I'm having no luck finding a short (60mm-70mm) stem for a bike with an old Pace fork. The problem is the fork's steerer tube is 31.8mm (1 1/4") O.D., and it seems that this has become a rare size. QBP doesn't even list the size in their stem drilldown, and most websites that sell stems don't bother to mention the steerer size, as 1 1/8" is standard now. The bar is 25.4mm. I'd hate to give up this fork, as it is very nicely made. However, my wife can't get comfortable with the longer stem that's on it now.
Anybody have a source for this? Thanks!
