Syntace Stratos are really good bars. I love mine. But I'd suggest getting a stem with a removable faceplate, it makes things so much easier.
What I did with my friends quill stem and his bullhorns, was take out the bolt, and if the side that the bolt screws into goes all the way through, screw it in on that side (the opposite side), and place a sheet of metal (such as a metal paint scraper) in front of the bolt hole, and then thread it. The sheet of metal will block the hole, and it should open up the clamp when you screw it in. Be careful not to do it too much, though. I hope this makes sense. LOL
EDIT: Eh, I just looked at the Origin-8 Quill stem and I don't think this would work with that stem..
I tried... Haha
