I've got a Burley Duet spec'd with a 1 1/8 headset.
Wanting wider bars and maybe a bit more height on the stem but old parts are hard to find just walkng into an LBS or Performance type shop. so I figured I might use a quill adaptor. This is where I am confused. Shouldn't the original stem on the Burley say 1 1/8 on the quill stem?
I pulled it out and found 25.4 stamped into the stem which is 1 inch.
I passed on the quill adaptor I saw at Performance because I though I needed one that was stamped 1 1/8.
The quill adaptors at Performance measure 1 inch in diameter, Would it work on my tandem?
I did have the headest changed to a Chris King year ago but that wouldn't explain the size of the quill stem.
Maybe 1/18 headset has nothing to do with the quill stem diameter? I'm lost.
Anyway, if I can use the adaptor, I can easily find new bars and stems in local shops.
Thanks for any clarification.
