    Straight Quill stems?

    I've been looking for a quill stem for my build... but all of the quill stems angle down or way up and I've found that it's better for me to have a straight or just slightly angled quill stem...



    I found this image and I believe that type of quill stem would be ideal... does anyone have any idea what that stem is or any similar stems? Thanks...!!!

    Man I thought I would be cool for having a cannondale... I had to trade 6 aerospokes for it man.. omgz now I can't be cool with aerospokes anymore.

    Hmmm, I saw that and it seems to be very enticing... (vixtor you shill) however now another question needs to be asked... how exactly do I measure my current stem? I definitely need something longer than my current stem, and I'm not sure if 90mm is long enough.

    and is my mind playing tricks on me? the nitto 73 degree stems like the nitto dynamic look like they're angled way more than that picture...

    Just helping Scrod wit bidnezz, know wat I'm sayin.

    If you have quill stem, measure from the center of the bolt to the center of the bar clamp; for threadless, center of steerer clamp to center of the bar clamp.

    73 or 17 degree stems will be almost parallel to most top tubes.

    The length is measured from the center of the quill/extension juncture to the center of the bar clamp.

    Your mind is playing tricks on you. A 73 degree stem will be "flat" like your image on most bikes (give or take a couple degrees. Not all head tubes are exactly 73 degrees)

    Never mind- you have the help you need.

    You might try older European CrMo stems. I slapped one on mine.



    Probably 74-75 degree instead of 73. But it might do you nothing because track frames have steeper column angle anyway, right? This one works like a charm on mine. Totally horizontal.

    P.S. Why bother changing it? I think that Cannondale looks good. Getting a longer Technomic is easy too.

    Nitto Technomic.

    When bike manufacturers went over to threadless stems, they took away much of the choice in choosing a good stem that fit you to your bike.

    With threadless stems, after adding spacers and a stem riser, if its still not where you need it to be, you've got problems.

    The idea behind threadless stems was to make road bar changes easier but little commends them over threaded stems.

    Except being a lot lighter and stiffer, There are open face quill stems and there are closed face threadless stems. Companies just went with the best technology. Some people like the look of the threaded/quill stem and so it has lived on.

    Old school CODA. Benefit is that is has a removable plate so you can switch the bars around.
