    Pazzaz 21.15mm stem adapter

    I have an old road bike that accepts a 21.15mm stem. Right now I have a cheap Profile Designs Boa mtb stem on it (130 degrees). The reason that stem is on there is because it has a face plate on it (two bolts with a removable plate to hold the bars) and I like to switch between my north roads bars and road bars. It was laying around but was too big (22.2mm) to fit the steer tube so I sanded it down. It took like five hours. The 130 degrees is becoming uncomfortable and I want to change things up. Because I have such a small steer tube (21.15 style) I'm having trouble finding a stem with a face plate AND the geometry I'm looking for (about 70 to 80 degrees). I'm thinking that getting an adapter and going with a threadless stem is my best bet unless you guys and girls have any other suggestions.

    Some site called cyclepath.ca has this product:
    http://www.cyclepath.ca/products/item1327.htm

    It's the only one I could find to fit in my steer tube, does anyone know anything about this adapter, the company or the website (past ordering experiences would be helpful regarding the canada/us thing)?

    Any help is appriciated.

    The product should work as you say it is the same as your steer tube.

    It would give you good adjustability as you can use pretty much any 1-1/8" threadless stem on it and these are available with the removable faceplates and in almost any length and angle.

    I don't know anything about the company or US customs as I am in the UK sorry
