    I'm trying to find a relatively good selection of 1 1/8" threaded stems. I've tried EBay, Nashbar, Performance, Harris, Chuck's, Froogle......with no real luck.

    Anyone have a suggestion for online shops that would carry a decent inventory of these?

    1 1/8" threaded? It's hard enough to find good 1" threaded stems these days.
    good luck.

    Hey, I just had a argument about the not-existing 1 1/8" threaded headsets/stems/forks last night.

    Why don't you just buy 1" and a shim?

    Yeah I've thought about that. Does the shim affect performance/looks?

    I don't have any first hand knowledge, but my friend uses a shim and a) I've never noticed it and b) he has never mentioned any difference in performance so I'd say it shouldn't be a problem.

    you can shim a quill stem?

    you could also go for a quill->threadless adaptor.

    Apparently not. I ended up finding a good adaptor on EBay though. Thanks for the good suggestions.

    Sorry, didn't read the "threaded" part of the original post.

    A quill-threadless adapter + a shim seems like a lot of extra parts.
    But I guess I don't see any reason why they all wont work together.

    well, you won't need a shim if you get a 1 1/8" to 1 1/8" adaptor.

    I didn't know they made quill->threadless adapters that also went from 1 1/8" to 1"

    That's just too damn practical.

    Have you tried Airbomb? They usually have what I need when I can't find it at Business Cycles, Performance, etc.

    There are lots of mtn stems around that are 1-1/8" quill. Okay, there's almost none, but they are out there, in the tickle trunks of bike geeks everywhere. I have a Syncros Cattleprod - light, yet stiff...

    If anyone can find this, I'd appreciate it. All I'm able to find are 1" to 1", 1 1/8" to 1 1/8", and 1" to 1 1/8". Thanks.

    Why would you ever want an adapter like that? There are many more threadless stems available in the 1 1/8" variety.

    I dunno, this isn't my thread.
    Maybe someone has a 1inch stem that they love and want to use it on their 1 1/8 headset.

    And ps. I took that info from a previous post that had an typo in it. The guy wrote 1 1/8 to 1 1/8, so I'm not sure in which direction that actual adapter comes.

    what typo?
    it's a 1 1/8" quill to 1 1/8" threadless adaptor

    as opposed to the (possibly) more common, 1" quill to 1 1/8" threadless adaptor.

    Ok, sorry.
    The "1 1/8" to 1 1/8" adaptor" confused me.
    I'm going to excuse myself from this thread as I am just causing confusion.

    You all pointed me in the right direction, so I now know what I need. Thanks for the info guys.
