    If youre looking for something more of a classic look, just buy another stem for each handlebar. Theyre not that expensive.

    Usually stems with removable face plates are just bulky and ugly.

    I think someone doesn't want to have to rewrap the bars.

    isnt there one called a bullfrog or something? i remember those looked nice. I switched to an oversize wing bar on my 97 trek (threaded headset) and used a quill to threadless converter. It works well, but does have a bit of an ugly factor to it.

    Cinelli Frogs were pretty nice, not classic design though. Don't know if they're still made.

    Salsa is the only commonly available, non butt-ugly option. But they only come in black.

    You can sometimes find cinelli frogs or TTT stems with removeable faceplates on ebay.
    I have a front brake, but I only use it for slowing or stopping.

    anyone know what stem they used on the fuji X obey bike? It was a nice quill with removable faceplate. I just need to find a polished one though instead of gold...
