i just picked up my nitto njs drops and i love them. i thought it would be awkward but they're perfect.
i have a crappy no name plastic stem i wanna switch out. any recommendations?
my friend wants to sell me his nitto njs stem for $50 but it slants down.. A LOT. kind of thinking it might increase my saddle to bar drop like woah. any recommendations? i just want something that looks clean/sexy. thanks!
maybe nitto dynamic? same general design, but without as aggressive of a drop...
i'm trying to figure out what plastic quill stems are out there. sounds... weird...
I don't know what this type of Stem is called.. I know it isn't a quill. But basically I have one that looks like this Thompson:
but its ****ING PLASTIC and so corny. My friend at my LBS just got a silver Thompson stem that looks very similar to this one he recommended but I love the looks of the Nitto NJS stems. Nitto dynamic is looking good.
Its just funny to have these nice ass track bars attached to a ****ing WALMART looking stem. Haha
Ah...I highly doubt that it's plastic. Unless you've got a Fisher Price bike...
Do you know if you have a quill stem or a threadless stem?
Its threadless. And if it isn't plastic, it sure as hell LOOKS plastic.
Do you know the size though?
Regardless of size, VeloOrange's got good looking stems.
Crabon Fibre, like duh.

Ah, so it has to be threadless. So since I plan on buying a Panasonic frame within the next 6 months, probably a better move to buy one of the threadless stems Vixtor recommended on the velo-orange site rather than a $100 Thompson stem, yeah?

Oh it's a Pake, then this will do.
I think Pake comes with an one inch fork...so you'll need to shim it.
He needs the 25.4mm version for his NJS drops.
Thanks guys. I am going to see if I can find a decent used stem at City Bikes so I don't have to wait 7-10 business days for shipping. Otherwise, VO it is!
