    I'm having a really hard time finding 1" quill stems with a removable face plate. I would love to switch between my drops and my risers, but there doesn't seem to be anything out there other than those ugly profile stems.
    my other option is getting a "modern" threadless stem and one of those nashbar quill 1" to 1 1/8" adapters. they look kind of lame, though.

    Very scarce, in my experience.
    I had a couple Dimension ones in the past but they were UGLY.

    Salsa has (had) a nice 1" quill with the SUL pop-top. I bought mine two years back but have subsequently moved on to threadless fork.
    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.

    the newer salsa sup's have removeable faces. they stopped making the quilled ones for a bit, but the site promises their return next year.

    that is 80 dollars well spent though. those stems are really unbeatable and worth every penny. a lot of track racers use them because they are so stiff. check ebay perhaps?

    just buy any-old quill. when you wanna swap bars, swap quills. easy.

    i disagree 80 bucks is well spent on a stem.

    What length are you looking for?
    I have this 90mm/-17 one that I was going to put on Ebay.
    Let me know if you want it.

    $80 sounds a bit pricey (as in gouging), think I paid $30 for mine via Performance. I should toss it up on eBay but I have a problem with letting go of parts.

    It is no worse than my Mutant- and I'm rocking a 14cm. It just LOOKS flexy

    Frankly, back to the OP- there is always the option of buying a "convertor" for $12 that allows use of a threadless stem on a threaded fork. It aint the most elegant way of running things, but it will allow for infinitely more options- particularly if someone needs a hideous rising stem.

    My LBS found me a CODA branded 1" quill stem with a removable faceplate. Not the prettiest thing but I think it cost me $5 so I was pretty happy.
