Way back there was an MTB frame builder shop in the woods of southern Oregon, they made a double wedge quill ,

and a stem, that the upper wedge expanded into, So you could pull the stem quill out of it,

did not need cable/housing slack to allow the whole stem to come up high enough to clear the top of the steerer..

A certain Rinko/Tour bike Packing advantage to that scheme.. now a custom build..
