    What's the required outer diameter of your stem?
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    Most quill stems are 22.2 mm French is 22 mm. You can spend a 1/2 hour with sand paper and polish to reduce a 22.2 stem to fit inside a french steerer tube . (don't even think about a hammer)Nitto still makes good quality 22.2 quill stems for 26mm bars , Your LBS can order them though QBP or mailorder shops like Harris Cyclery and Yellow Jersey usually stock them. You might get lucky and they may have some French stems .
