    Curious - why are you against using a shim and choosing from a vast plethora of available stems?

    im not against it, but if there is a nice looking good quality 1 inch threadless stem out there then id rather do that than result to a shim. worse case scenario, i get a shim. but might as well see whats out there that im not aware of before doing that.

    Actually, an even worse-case scenario is that you fall into a swamp and get your legs chewed off by an alligator while being chased by a grizzly bear with a rocket launcher. But I see what you're saying.

    Silly question, but what it the actual OD of a 1" threadless stem? Is is 22.2 mm or 25.4 mm. Was wondering as I have a idea for a project floatiing around in my head.

    your first case scenario should be: the thomson shim, it's only $5, widely available
    shimming 1" to 1 1/8" is not a "results to", its a "perfectly what you should do anyway" to.

    guess what: the best nice looking good quality 1" stem is a 1 1/8" thomson stem.

    i disagree, its the cinelli alter ;p
    but i would definitely agree to a 1 1/8th thomson stem being the best nice looking good quality 1 1/8th stem lol (i have two on separate builds. even a different ano color stem body bolt thing on one haha)

    and yes yes i know i know getting a shim is most likely one of my very best options, but like i said i just want to see what ALL my options are that arn't shimming...just to see whats out there....and i have gotten some good suggestions i wasnt aware of from this thread so yay! but keep them coming....

    btw does anyone remember buzz going around about cinelli reissueing the alter? that was like last year and still no alter

    btw 2 how much did alters MSRP for when they were in bike shops and stuff?

    actually i think i remember reading they were going to be 1 1/8th. makes sense, most threadless forks are.

    I've used a couple different ones made by Velo Orange. They're well made. Clean. And affordable.

    Different styles and angles.

    The outside diameter of a 1" threadless steerer is 1". The stem is not a cylinder so does not have a consistent diameter.
