Anyway to shorten the stem on this bike
BFOLD 7 Folding Bike, City Bike MATEX - All Bikes Cycling - On sale at Decathlon.co.uk
I have been using this daily to work and back for one month. Cheap compared to big brands but still like it. Although not particular excellent in any respect (not very small when folded, not very fast, not very light etc) but nor any issue. It's sturdy and value for money. I can just lock it anywhere I want without worrying it being stolen and ride happily in the rain without thinking too much about maintenance.
Now I want to lower the stem to make it more sporty and hence increase some speed (got some strong head wind recently and there will be more when winter comes). I have thought of changing the handlebar to a rode bike type but that will affect the fold-ability, and also not sure if the shifters and brakes can be installed properly. So any idea what short stem for folding bike I can buy to replace the existing one? Are these stems interchangeable? Thanks.
