    Aluminum Specification Question

    I'm looking at the possibility of having a custom quill stem adapter made similar to this.

    High Rider

    Which grade of aluminum would be appropriate for this use? Searching the web, I can find round 2024 and 6061 readily available in the appropriate size.

    Any Help would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,

    Ken

    I would go with the 6061, simply because it is an industrial grade and will probably be cheaper... plus if it ever comes up it's a weldable alloy.
