Bars/Stem (quill) Choosing
Hey, I need to get a different stem as mine is too long, and I figured I may as well replace the grooved road bars I currently have on there. I don't think the stem will matter much, and I guess I could just find something cheap on eBay or whatever. However I'm finding the bar choices a bit difficult with ungrooved bars being somewhat uncommon and all. I'm open to most ungrooved bars that are available in 39-41cm (c-c) bars, but the one thing I'm not so keen on is steel as I doubt I will be an amazing sprinter at 137 pounds. I figure for clamp size 26 or 25.4 makes the most sense. The Nitto 125AA looks like a pretty nice bar, and is supposedly stronger due to heat treatment, but I don't know if it's worth the price since Nitto mod 127 is less than half the price. A lot of the track bars out there are very expensive, though, and I'm wondering if I can just find an old, ungrooved road bar and use that. Stems don't look quite so hard to find, but if you have a particular recommendation of a 1" stem that is available in 90/95mm, I'd be interested in that as well.
Anyway, thanks for sifting through my rambling,
