    21.1 to 1" stem adapter?

    I found a nice older stem riser with a long 120mm extension.
    Trouble is, the threadless clamp size is 1" instead of the usual 1 1/8".

    Does anyone make a quill stem adapter that has a 21.1 lower section and a 1" upper section?

    Do you mean 22.2 lower section? That's the standard road/mtb quill size.

    If so, Nitto made some two piece stems in the mid 80s that were used on higher end MTBs. They were similar to modern threaded->threadless converters + a threadless stem, but in a 1" size.



    If you really meant 21.1 (bmx size, I think), that may be even harder to find. If you're lucky, Nitto may have made one of those since some very early MTBs used the bmx size stems.

    Edit: Just searched, if you meant 22.2, this may possibly work for you:

    My steerer tube is indeed a 21.1mm inner diameter...it's an early 70's Schwinn Super Sport. I am rebuilding two of them, one for my son-in-law and one for myself.

    I don't think there is a 21.1mm adapter to a 1 inch threadless. The 21.1 is a bit of an oddity as it, and the only threadless adapter that exists (as least that my search has revealed) is the Manowar adapter from Crank2. A good machine shop can apparently turn down a normal 22.2 adapter.

    Ebay also has 21.1 adaptors. Just type in 21.1 stem and make sure to include title and description. You'll get a few hits. Good luck on the search. You might even be able to get complete 21.1 quill stems.

    1989 Raleigh Technium, 1989 Schwinn Traveler, 1986 Specialized Rockhopper
    1984 Specialized Stumpjumper, 1986 Specialized Stumpjumper and just way too many projects to list.

    Also enter .833 in your online stem searches. You'll see a somewhat different assortment of 21.1mm parts to choose from.

    It's like my search for clipless 1/2" pedals. I entered both "clipless bmx" and "clipless 1/2" to search for the auctions I needed, and came up with Wellgo, Redline and Bulletproof-branded variants.

    It's taken a while, but I now have all of the clipless 1/2" pedals (and 21.1mm, 11cm quill stems) that I need.
    The EZSniper bidding also helped me secure the goods.

    Oh, and I've looked, but never have found a 21.1mm-to-1" threadless quill adapter.

    I can find an adapter with a 1" threadless top, but a 22.2 bottom: http://www.ebay.com/itm/BICYCLE-STEM...item3cc67ed048 and http://www.ebay.com/itm/BICYCLE-QUIL...item43b6f301da

    Or, I can find an adapter with a 21.1 bottom but a 1 1/8" top: http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Stem-Ada...item20cc70fe46

    But, so far I cannot locate one with a 21.1mm bottom and a 1" top.
    Looks like it's off to the local machine shop...

    Thanks, as usual, for all the help and replies!
