the search turns up waaay too many answers to be of much use for me here...i'm going to need a quill stem for a new build soon. i don't know too much about what's out there, since i've been using threadless.
but basically i need a 130mm stem that'll hold 26.0 bars so i can run my bullhorns on them. or one with a removable face plate.
i don't really need a nitto jaguar stem or anything really fancy. but so many quill stems i see at bike shops are pretty short and just made for road bars or cruiser bars. so what's big enough to get other things through and long enough to give me the sort of room/handling i'm accustomed to, and not too spendy?
edit: forgot to mention, too...if you think patience and the LBS parts bin will work, great. but i may have to buy off the internet.
