    That's what I have. Figured it'd be easier for trying different rises and reaches, especially since there's not a lot of road-type stems for 1-1/8".

    I'm kind of in the same boat. Even though I'm tall with a long torso, the stem I'm using stretches me out uncomfortably. Fortunately, I have a few other stems to play with.

    I'm just guessing, but I think you put the spindle in backwards. One end is longer than the other...they're not symmetrical. I made this mistake once, and it drove me crazy until someone here...

    I think there's ready-made hangers that mount on the wall, and you store one bike above the other. It's probably not that hard to make one, too, and it'd be a lot cheaper. Two 2x4's and a few feet...

    I'll try twisting the loop of wire around it to spring it, until I can rustle up a tool.
