    AHHH, stupid bend

    I just recieved my Syntace bullhorns from Chucks, but the extreme bends wont fit through my stem. So, what are some threaded stems that are front loading? Or should I buy a threadless adapter and use a threadless stem?

    you sure you're using a 26.0 stem? the only time i couldn't get a stem around my 26.0 horns was when i was unwittingly using a 25.4 stem. just so you know.

    but yeah, just hold a screwdriver in there and twist, it might take a friend to help though. one to twist and one to put the horns through.

    btw, i bought the syntac from chuck's too. been waitin' for a new frame to try them out.
